At Inspire it is imperative and important that our children enjoy new and varied experiences that encourage them to be the best version of themselves and that any disability is not seen as a barrier but an opportunity for inspirational outside the box thinking.
We hold a belief that no child should be disadvantaged and that all children are part of the community, enjoying all that this offers including celebrations, events and fundraising.
Our teams are fully committed to Inspire's goals, they understand the challenges and rewards of working with our young people and know that every day they will achieve things that really matter.
