vInspired cashpoint: open for business
Aged 14 - 25? Got a great idea for solving a problem in your community? Then look no further.
Young people living in the communities close to the airports at Aberdeen, Glasgow, Heathrow, Southampton and Stansted can bring their social action ideas to life, through vInspired cashpoint.
The scheme is supported by a £60,000 fund from The Communities Trust.
It offers grants of up to £500 to give 14 – 25 year olds the chance to change their community for the better.
Grants have already been given to young people, who used their creativity and passions to develop projects such as stand-up comedy sessions to help young people build their confidence, cycling lessons to give young women from Bangladeshi communities independence, and a community ‘earth ship’ to educate local people about eco-friendly living.
Through applying for and running their projects, young people learn vital skills and confidence to help them in their future careers and perhaps even inspire them to set up their own full-scale social enterprises.
vInspired cashpoint is run by vInspired, a national youth charity helping young people to build new skills and confidence while helping their communities through volunteering and social action.

Applications will be accepted until August 2013. Grants will be awarded for not-for-profit projects that show a clear positive benefit to a community, group or the planet.
