vInspired is an independent British charity dedicated to helping young people volunteer in their local communities. We provide access to thousands of opportunities for 14-25 year olds to get involved in their communities and earn awards for their work.

vInspired Live


On July 6 2013, we put on our biggest event yet bringing our young volunteers together with top music acts like Professor Green, Skepta and A*M*E as well as inspirational speakers Jack & Finn Harries and Levi Roots!

We wanted to get everyone into the Roundhouse to talk to them about self-esteem. One of our Team v leaders, Emma Norris, talked to us about how we see ourselves, and how we can think more positively about who we are. It was such an inspirational message that all our celebs started thinking about it, too!

Now we want you to think about it, and tell us what you're best at. Not easy is it? But have a think, write it on your hand and tweet your selfie to us for the world to see what your power is! #MyPowerIs

Team v

Team v is a chance for you to earn your way to a better future for all of us. A unique nine-month leadership and volunteering programme, powered by socially-aware young people determined to make a change.

From September to May you will work alongside 150 other team v leaders to build skills and friendships while working towards a £1000 scholarship. Upon finishing, you are free to use this to fund whatever you want to go into next; personal training courses, start up funds for a youth group or it can go towards university fees.

A programme for people who have a great vision of the future, and want to gain the tools needed to make it happen.

How can you get involved?

Applications for 2013/14 are still open for a limited time and you can apply here.
