About Spirit of 2012

We believe that happiness is not just nice-to-have, but essential. Participating in well-organised activities improves happiness and our ambition is to find out why and how, so that everyone can join in, and get the best out of it.

The London 2012 Games


The National Lottery Community Fund founded Spirit in 2013 with a £47m endowment to continue and recreate the spirit of pride, positivity and community that inspired people across the UK during the London 2012 Games.

Our Purpose
