Support Us

Inspire is for life, not just for Christmas.

THE John Lewis ad, mince pies, and most charity Christmas appeals all have one thing in common. They appear in November and are never spoken about again after boxing day (until next year). But we want to flip that on its head.


  • This December, we will be hosting a Christmas dinner for families who might otherwise go without. 

  • In January, we will be making sure our heating is cranked up and offering every young person in the borough a safe warm place they can come to after school.

  • In the summer, we’ll ensure that all young people have access to a variety of activities and don’t need to worry about where their next meal will come from.

All year round, we’ll be working to make sure all young people have a safe place to be, a listening ear to hear them, and access to a whole world of new opportunities. But to do that, we need you to give us a hand.

Whatever you choose, not only will you be able to shout I’M INSPIRED from the rooftops. You’ll also be able to get involved in our Inspire’ational challenge, bag tickets to our awards night, and if you sign up before the 16th December, your money will be match funded (up to £25k) meaning your impact on the lives of young people will be doubled!


Our valued monthly supporters commit to aiding the charity on a monthly basis (£100, £250 or £500) ; providing critical, reliable support that helps us to plan effectively and manage our finances as best we can. Can you be an inspiration to hundreds of young people?


Fundraising for Inspire is a great way to have fun and raise vital funds to support young people. From charity bike rides to ‘Tough Mudder Obstacles' – everyone can fundraise! Your funds are vital in the work Inspire does with young people. From £1 to £1000, everything helps young people reach their full potential.

We offer hundreds of activities to thousands of young people, 7 days a week, all year round. In order to continue to offer this service, we need support from throughout the community – whether it be generous investment from local businesses through to donations of time by our volunteers, Inspire Youth Zone is something that all our community can get involved in and be proud of for years to come.

If you share our belief that all young people should have something to do, somewhere to go and someone to talk to, then fundraise with us to raise aspirations and support the next generation to realise their potential. We are extremely grateful to everyone who supports us to make our work possible, and all of you who share our passion.

Support us by donating your time and skills!
