How do volunteers assign an organisation to validate their award?

To select your organisation as a validator, your volunteers need to have been accepted onto one of your opportunities OR need to be ‘following’ your organisation on

To follow you, volunteers need to go to your profile on and click the ‘follow’ button. The name of your organisation will then appear in a drop down list when they are asked to choose a validator for their v30, v50 or v100 applications.

You can track your followers via the 'people' tab in your admin account.

Email notification

When you have been selected to validate an award you will receive an email to let you know. To start validating the award log into the admin system here. If you ever get a notification from a volunteer you do not know, please notify us at
