Can my volunteering outside of vInspired count towards an award?

It sure does!

But first, you need to create a volunteer profile. When you've done that start logging hours for the volunteering you've already done using the Volunteering outside of vInspired option on your profile page.

You can of course apply for opportunities you see on our site at any time - these will appear on your profile when the organiser accepts you, then you can add hours against those too. Simple!

Once you've recorded enough hours of volunteering you can go ahead and apply for an award. You can apply from within your profile.

Please allow 10 working days for our Central Validations Team (or the organisation you volunteer with, if they're an Awards Provider) to review, approve and send your award‎ to you (v50 / 100 only).
