Planning and running events that benefit the communities young people live in


Taking inspiration from the tenth anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Inspire 2022 is youth-led events-based social action programme which will use national events as a springboard for young people to design positive activities for their own communities, bridging community divides and giving young people a voice in a year of national celebration.

We want to inspire young people aged 11-25 and empower them to run their own events in their local communities.

With support from youth workers, young people will identify needs in their community and design events to address these, applying for grants of up to £5,000!

Co-designed with young people, Inspire 2022 is a year-long programme putting young people at the heart of their communities through events-based social action.

We are looking for young people to join us on a journey of social engagement, social learning, social action, and youth leadership to lead change in your communities.

Saturday 14th January 11am - 4pm
