- Explore Lives and Be Inspired -

The Inspired Life team are delighted to be shortlisted for 2 national awards recognizing their work supporting young people and communities to set goals, dream big and also develop life and social skills.  Inspired Life has been shortlisted in the Royal Bank of Scotland Social Enterprise 100 Index for the Trail Blazing Newcomer Award.  This award recognizes social impact delivered with organizations that make a difference from their activities and work.  The index monitors these social outcomes alongside conventional financial measures.  The award ceremony for the RBS SE 100 is on Wednesday 6th November at the Good Deals Social Investment Conference in London. 

Inspired Life has also been shortlisted for the Independent Newspapers “Business Excellence Awards” for Social Responsibility, which is judged by your peers. That award ceremony is on Friday 25th October at the Hilton in London.  For this award Inspired Life, despite its small size, is alongside many national and global giants such as British Gas, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Anglian Water, First Group and the Entertainer Toyshops.

Inspired Life aims to live and breathe energy and inspiration in all that they do, through their experiential programmes and activities for young people and communities. Already they have reached almost 20,000 young people, primarily in Bedfordshire and made a real difference to their dreams, goals and skills for life. They were awarded the London 2012 Inspire Mark and were also finalists in an 'Excellence in Education' Award.  Inspired Life uses inspirational role models including Olympians, World Champions, adventurers, musicians , artists and a host of other inspiring people to share their experiences and stories during their events and programmes.  

Inspired Life are developing new programmes to provide experiential learning for global citizenship and social enterprise themes for young people. Recently they completed the draft of their second book, a junior edition of their award winning ‘Little Book of Inspiration’ which is a life-coaching model for young people.  Accompanying this book is a beautifully crafted children’s story called “The Journey to the Mountains of the Moon” which has been entered into the Times short story competition. The story written by Inspired Life role model Lauren Jarvis, former editor of National Geographic Kids Magazine is designed to be narrated, with activities, by Inspired Life inspirational speakers as part of the new programme for primary schools. The team are also about to produce a teachers handbook featuring over 75 different Inspired Life resources and a social enterprise planning tool for schools and students.

Co Founder Richard Harpham said “We are incredibly proud to be shortlisted for these two awards.  Inspired Life is a statement of intent as much as an organisation. We work with an incredible collection of inspirational speakers, story tellers, and presenters from many different walks of life. We are passionate about inspiring young people, communities and organisations to embrace their full potential and to follow their dreams.  We behave as a true social enterprise with benefits and earnings going back to local communities.”
