Inspire 2022

Inspire 2022 is a £1.2m grant programme, developed by Spirit of 2012 in a strategic partnership with Local Trust.

Spirit of 2012 and Local Trust are seeking a delivery partner or partnership to deliver the Inspire 2022 programme across the UK.

Inspire 2022 will provide grant funding to support youth-led activity across the UK, inspired by high-profile cultural and sporting events (and national moments) taking place in 2022. These will include the Rugby League World Cup, Coventry UK City of Culture, The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Women’s Euros, Festival UK* 2022 and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Inspire 2022 will support young people aged 11-25 across the UK to become agents of change in their communities. The programme will provide groups of young people with access to funding of up to £5,000, and offer practical support to enable young people to consult with their communities, then to design and deliver their own community-based events.

Please note that Inspire 2022 is a working title and we will work with the delivery partner or partnership to develop the branding, alongside the design and delivery of the project, to ensure it reflects the strategic needs of the partner organisation/s.
