Bringing the buzz and benefits of 2022’s packed sporting calendar right to the doorstep of those young people who need it most.
2022 was a hugely exciting year for sport in the UK, with the Commonwealth Games, UEFA Women’s EURO and Rugby League World Cup joining annual events including Wimbledon and The Open in taking place on home soil. Further afield, the Winter Olympics, Women’s Cricket World Cup, FIFA World Cup and more rounded out a sporting calendar that has inspired thousands more people to get active.
We wanted to make sure that this ripple effect was felt by everybody, including those in underserved communities who experience multiple barriers to accessing sport and physical activity. #Inspiration2022 was designed to do just that.
With a programme of exciting events and opportunities, all tied in with these key sporting fixtures, we worked with our network of Locally Trusted Organisations to bring a year-round, multisport offer of activities and experiences right to the doorstep of those young people who need it most.
