About vinspired

What we do

vinspired is the UK's leading volunteering charity for 14 - 25 year olds. vinspired helps young people to make their mark on causes that they care about, whilst learning new skills and talents along the way. 

vinspired recognises that volunteering can help young people thrive, and transform the communities they live in. It teaches them vital skills, like teamwork and problem-solving. It prepares them for their future. 

We know that 74% of young people are ready to volunteer, which will have a massive impact on communities across the UK. We're here to help young people harness those opportunities.

How we champion volunteering

vinspired helps young people make a difference. We were set up in 2006 and since then, we have created over 1 million volunteering opportunities for young people across the UK. We're always looking for ways to help them get involved with causes that they care about, and to help better prepare them for their futures. 

Volunteering teaches young people vital skills, like teamwork and problem-solving. And, with 74% of young people ready to volunteer, it can make a massive difference to communities across the UK. Last year, we helped 31,439 young people do 460,611 hours of voluntary work. That's a £2.3 million contribution to the economy.
