Since its introduction in 1996, VIVA has been tried and tested by many organisations across the public, private and voluntary and community sectors. These include the Home Office, various hospitals and hospices, the Prince’s Trust and the World Wildlife Fund. Local authorities have often required their grantees to use the method to demonstrate the value of volunteering. VIVA has also been used internationally; it was initially road tested across a number of European voluntary sector organisations and various societies of the Red Cross have used it widely, with plans to translate it into other languages.
