Just starting out with your volunteering? Record 10 hours and get your first steps into volunteering recognised straight away.
You'll need to add hours as you go and tell us about the volunteering you did. You can also add some colour to your story by uploading photos. If you get the taste for it you can then move on to the v30!
Your v10 hours count towards the v30, so you're well on your way.
30 hours of volunteering
Regularly giving up your time to help out?
The v30 is the next level up. Same deal as v10, you'll need to add hours as you go, tell us about the difference you made and add photos if you've got some. Once you've reached 30 hours, submit your award for approval and we'll get your certificate to you ASAP.
Keep it up! Move on to the v50. Your v30 hours count towards the v50, so you're well on your way.

Impress employers with your volunteering
"We believe young people, if supported, can realise their dreams and make a positive contribution to society and volunteering is the perfect way to make this happen. Never has this been more important than now with unemployment soaring especially for the young population."Nigel Trood, CEO @ Red Bull
"As an employer, I'm always keen to look for things in people outside the ordinary. Exam results are important of course, but we're also looking for other skills and other attributes. If somebody has volunteering on their CV, they are more likely to be attractive to potential employers."Peter Bull, HSBC
