About us

What we do

We're the nation's leading youth volunteering charity...

We believe that young people can change the world.

We provide young people with opportunities to gain new experiences and skills for life by taking action on causes they care about.

We’ve created more than one million volunteering opportunities. So far, over 164,000 young people have used to volunteer with more than 4,400 charities.

How we champion volunteering

We make it easy for young people to change the world. In return for their time, volunteers become more skilled, confident and employable whilst doing things they really care about.

There are rewards available for vInspired volunteers. You can earn vInspired Awards  that illuminate your CV. You can become a young entrepreneur. You can make your own projects a reality by getting valuable funding through our programmes. You can make a change by campaigning for things that you care about.

We've changed the face of volunteering by transforming the ways that young people can do good things.

Recognising volunteers

The vInspired Awards provide formal recognition of the time and skills you invest in volunteering, and the benefits to people, communities and the environment. They can even be used on UCAS applications.
