Inspire programme

Inspire programme

An Olympic and Paralympic first, the London 2012 Inspire programme enables non-commercial organisations across the UK to link their events and projects to the London 2012 Games in an official scope.

From Wales to the East of England, from the South West to Yorkshire and Humber - more than 1000 projects and events have already been awarded the coveted Inspire mark for their work in one of six areas: sustainability, education, volunteering, business, sport or culture.
