vInspired awards & how to apply

Make your good deeds count by totting up your volunteering hours for the vInspired awards scheme. Our nationally recognised awards are great to add to your CV, impress colleges, universities and potential employees.


We offer a v10, v30, v50 and v100 for 10, 30, 50 and 100 hours of volunteering.

First, you need to create a volunteer profile. When you've done that you can start logging hours for the volunteering you've already done (up to 2 years worth!) 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 do this 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).
