The Inspire programme has been very successful across the UK over the last four years with projects in sport, culture, education, sustainability, volunteering and business opportunities and skills. The programme has also been promoted online at london2012.com, at community events, through the Nations and Regions group and as part of ministerial visits across the UK. Already, over 1,700 Inspire projects have signed up, and 10 million people have participated.
The Government are encouraging local initiatives so that they can sustain their Inspire projects as part of the legacy from the games.
