Rewards & Recognition

We know how valuable volunteers are to local community organisations, which is why we offer discount cards and certificates.


Committed volunteers are eligible for discounts in businesses across London.


ValueYou is a charity which provides free discount cards to long serving volunteers. The ValueYou scheme provides a discount card to people who have volunteered over 100 hours within the past 12 months. The card is free and can be used at over 600 independent businesses across London. Volunteers can also choose a gift voucher donated by an independent business.  To see an area discount guide for Barnet & Haringey click here.

  2. completing a project / supporting an event / attending a training course
  3. a general certificate for a volunteer you want to recognise
