Inspire Suffolk is a sports and education charity based in premises comprising of offices, classrooms and sports facilities on a former school site in Lindbergh Road, Ipswich.
Participants in our programmes vary over the different courses we deliver, however they all have personal challenges to overcome and improvements to make in their lives, whether this is improving numeracy, literacy or ICT skills, learning about exercise and diet or gaining self-esteem and confidence. We work hard to provide them with the opportunity to take part in activities that perhaps they may not otherwise have access to.
