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 1900 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.
Non-commercial projects and events inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have until 1 December 2011 to apply to be a part of the Games as an official London 2012 Inspire project.
Organisations that join the programme will be awarded the Inspire mark and can use this special logo to promote their project or event as well as show that they are part of London 2012. After applications close in December, London 2012 will focus on supporting and showcasing the existing projects and events.
