Miscellaneous Information:

Inspira is a national social enterprise company based in Cumbria. We are the leading careers guidance and youth work organisation previously known as ConnexionsCumbria. Our name reflects our purpose – to inspire people, organisations and communities to recognise their potential, identify what success means for them, and help them gain the confidence to achieve it.

We offer comprehensive solutions to a wide variety of social challenges, including delivery of statutory services to public bodies and strategic support for local authority programmes supporting youth in the community.
We have helped to achieve one of the lowest rates in the country for young people not in employment, education or training (NEET), helping more than 60,000 young people into one of those activities.

We have had over 1 million personal contacts with young people and in a recent survey 94% of young people said our services were easy to use and felt we respected and listened to them.

Much of our work involves partnering with other leading social enterprise organisations who share our objective of helping others identify and fulfill their aspirations. We understand and appreciate that by working with others we can often achieve much more than working alone.
