In order to participate in the European Solidarity Corps volunteering, traineeships and job activities, organisations are required to obtain a Quality Label.

This is required to ensure compliance of the participating organisations with the principles and objectives of the European Solidarity Corps, as regards their responsibilities during all stages of solidarity activities. All organisations holding a Quality Label gain access to the European Solidarity Corps database.

Having a quality label will not automatically lead to funding. Organisations apply for a Quality Label to the National Agency of their country or regional SALTOs in case of Partner countries. Applications for Quality Label can be submitted on a continuous basis.

Organisations with a valid European Voluntary Service accreditation can participate in volunteering activities without holding a Quality Label.

A Quality Label is not needed for solidarity projects.

For further details, please refer to the European Solidarity Corps Guide.
