What is Inspire +?
Inspire + is a group Inspire Suffolk supporters that help our charity to provide life-changing interventions for young people by pledging to donate £1,000 each year. With their support, we’re able to reach young people in our community who might have otherwise fallen through the cracks.

“Having had an inner city upbringing with very few privileges, one of the most positive things I was exposed to in my mid-teens were programmes similar to those being offered by Inspire. Now as the owner of a successful and strongly branded International company, I still draw from the life experiences gained and for this reason, I feel especially privileged to be a member of the Inspire +, sponsoring and encouraging young adults along a similar path!”

“My decision to become an Inspire 30 member goes back to my time visiting a group of youngsters in Stowmarket nearing the end of their Team Programme course with Inspire Suffolk. I spoke to all of them, but to one boy in particular, and when I asked him what was the one thing that he really valued from the course, he replied “my residential.” I asked him what he meant and he replied “this was the first time in my life that I’d been taken out of my comfort zone and my environment and challenged. I learnt about teamwork, responsibility and what it meant to me and others.” I asked him how he was going to use that experience and he replied: “It has given me the belief to do so much more as I’m fed up of just being myself.”
So when Inspire Suffolk asked me to become an Inspire 30 member, I thought that if I could give one other young person the same opportunity and possibly change their life for the better, it was an easy decision to say yes.”
