What happens after I apply?

I've submitted my application to cashpoint, so...

Q. What happens next?

A. If we like your idea, we will give you a call to talk about it. In your application, you will be asked to choose the best time to call you. Once we’ve spoken to you our Panel will decide whether to fund the project or not.

Q. Can I start my project straight away?

A. You need to wait until we have given you a decision before you start your project, this could take up to six weeks. In the meantime it’s a great idea to carry on planning your project.

Q. How should I keep in touch with vInspired about my project?

A. vInspired need you to keep in touch about how you are getting on. We will phone you to ask you how you are progressing half way through your project and ask you to complete an end of project report when you have finished. You will also be asked to start adding your volunteering hours on the website so that you can complete a vInspired award. Click here to find out more about the awards.

Q:  How will the funding get paid to me?

A:  If your application is successful, vInspired will set up a new joint bank account for your project funds to be paid into. In order to set this up we will need you to:

  • Sign a short application form
  • Sign a ‘debit card’ agreement form

You will then be issued with a pre-paid debit card which will be credited with your grant award.

Q. Do I need to keep my receipts?

A. Yes, please keep receipts for anything that you buy over £25. You may be asked to submit them at the end of your project.
