SportInspired works with businesses to create innovative, high-impact programmes in their local communities, whilst engaging and developing employees
At SportInspired we work with businesses to engage and develop their employees, whilst connecting them to a network and opportunities in their communities. Since we were founded in 2008, we have run over 200 programmes in partnership with some of the countries most influential companies, including Sky, UBS. Publicis and Deloitte. Through these programmes, together we have given nearly 300,000 volunteer hours to communities in need across the UK. We do this through a community-building platform which is devised to showcase the expertise and infrastructure in our communities, which offer an array of developmental experiences. Our programmes include a variety of innovative opportunities for business volunteers. They are different in that they introduce volunteers to the community on a variety of different levels, helping them get to know local children, teachers and sports coaches. We also take pride in linking our programmes back to companies' talent and organisational development goals

- boost their staff morale and staff engagement

We work with SportInspired because they know how to deliver for the community and for corporates.
When I did 10 metres I felt great. I felt really happy when I did my 250. Everyone says “Well done” and “That’s great Lewis” and that makes me feel happy. It’s like an achievement of my life. It’s one of the best things I've ever done.
SportInspired’s Games aren’t just about having a fantastic day. It is great for business and delivers a foundation for promoting sports participation and accessing sport in the community, leaving a tangible and sustainable legacy we can all be proud of.
You see the kids coming in and some of them are as quiet as anything, withdrawn, and they go out and they are maybe six inches taller than they were when they came in, you know, just on a complete high.
SportInspired’s approach has provided the Council with a platform that brings all key stakeholders together and helps us to align our projects and initiatives. In a recent Games programme, 92% of the 900 young people stated they were more likely to take up sport, had improved their team working skills, and had more confidence.
I want to say how pleased me and my husband are about all the opportunities you have given my boy. He is really proud of himself and we are really proud of him as well.
Through working with SportInspired, I have gained many local contacts with schools, community clubs and local community. SportInspired has played a key role in helping to lay down a clear pathway to the community that will help further develop and inspire our children. Thames View Junior School has welcomed this with open arms, and so have many other schools in the Borough.
The games are great! It gives young people the opportunity to try a number of different sports and that is key. It has really raised the awareness of basketball in the community and has helped our school programmes grow from strength to strength.
I had fun with my friends and it was the best day of my whole life!
I deal with a lot of difficult customers on the phone, and whenever I get a difficult customer I just think of the day I was there and how happy the kids were.
Thanks for the amazing opportunity, the students loved it, and will remember it for a long time.
“SportInspired has become a key partner in the delivery of a lasting legacy of sports with our School Sports Partnership and its member schools. They clearly understand the needs of schools and young people when delivering their programmes, which are of the highest quality. We welcome any future involvement with the organisation and its employees, in helping to inspire a generation.”
