It all began as a teenager, being lucky enough to have access to a wonderful youth service. It offered exciting opportunities, support, informal education with great fun along the way, without judging the sometimes terrible decisions but helping those involved to make sense of their lives. Reflecting back on these experiences emphasised the passion for our service to begin.

Inspire Youth was established in 2019 by its founder Jess Ward, following her 15 years of experience in the development and delivery of projects, with extensive training to a high level in the youth work sector.
