Volunteer Service Abroad is a member of the Council for International Development (CID) and is a signatory to the CID Code of Conduct.

We support this code as it requires members to meet high standards of corporate governance, public accountability and financial management. 

In October 2019, VSA signed its commitment to achieving the Global Standard for Volunteering for Development developed by the International Forum for Volunteering in Development. The Standard will ensure more responsible and impactful volunteering, and will help organisations contribute positively to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The Standard also aims to improve the outcomes of volunteering for development activities, ensuring organisations that work through and with volunteers are both impactful and responsible in their practice.
