Who We Are
Inspiring Your Future is a social non-for-profit organisation with a conscience. Established in 2020 we design and deliver programmes of support that directly impact our communities.
Our aim is simple; to support people to achieve their potential no matter what barriers they may face. We are a trauma informed organisation with peoples well- being and mental health at the very core of everything we do.
Every programme we deliver has four pillars of success that underpin it; Life, Social, Mind and Body.
Inspiring Your Future is a social enterprise set up to unite communities and empower lives.
We create opportunity for positive change through our inclusive projects, focusing on mental health, well-being, exercise and nutrition.
A future where all members of our community have the opportunity, knowledge and self-belief to thrive.
We believe its fundamental to a person’s success if they can effectively access and implement these four basic cornerstones to transform their own lives and communities
Direction, Identity, Personal Growth
Relationships, Values, Purpose
Mental Health, Managing Emotions, Coping Mechanisms
Exercise and Activity, Diet and Nutrition, Self-Care
Setting achievable goals and building a plan to get you where you want to be is vital for anyone embarking on a journey of change. Helping you understand your identity, your beliefs and how they limit you will then, we believe, enable you to grow. We will help you recognise what is within your power to change, what you want for yourself and how to overcome the barriers you feel that stop you achieving this.
Being able to engage in positive relationships allow us to find happiness and grow. Identifying our values helps us to understand how we view the world, how we interact with people and what is important to us; they shape our choices and decisions. Knowing what is important to you and why it is important to you gives you stability and increases your self -esteem and self-confidence. Having and recognising good values increases everyone’s chances of achieving this.
Having a sense of purpose is integral for anyone to be able to guide their behaviour and obtain their goals. We believe that finding and understanding your sense of purpose will give you better mental health and overall wellbeing. Being able to find your purpose involves a sense of self knowledge that can be nurtured through positive experiences, interactions and self-belief.
Mental health is important as it impacts how we think, feel, behave and interact with others.
No matter what age you are the importance of mental health for anyone’s wellbeing cannot be underestimated. When your mental health is affected it can cause negative behaviours that will affect both your personal life and compromise relationships with others. Having the knowledge to not only recognise our own mental health and the health of those around you allows us to adapt, manage and cope with the challenges we all face effectively. We believe this will therefore reduce any negative impact it can have on an individual, families, relationships and connection in the community.
Having access to a variety of exercise programmes whatever your age or ability not only changes your body it changes your mood, attitude and mind for the better.
Showing and teaching the importance of eating well and how this directly impacts your mood, energy levels and health helps people to understand that a healthy outside starts from the inside. We believe that nutritious, affordable, practical meals should be available to everyone and are committed to sharing the knowledge and skills to achieve this; ensuring that everyone feels empowered, confident and capable to use them in their everyday lives.
By treating our bodies with respect, we are reinforcing that we value ourselves, and recognising our behaviours have a significant impact on our wellbeing. Adopting healthy habits and being able to avoid destructive ones gives us the power to appreciate and respect ourselves; therefore, creating a vessel for our behaviour and choices to mirror each other in a positive way.
“Your life rests on the four pillars of success, having strong pillars creates a society of truth, freedom, triumph and fulfilment”
