Workspace in the community

Equipping London’s young people with key professional skills

InspiresMe is an initiative driven by Workspace Group, the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Business in the Community (BITC), to provide valuable work experience for London’s young people and inspire them to build their own businesses in the future. It's also an exciting opportunity for small businesses to gain access to the fresh insight and enthusiasm that working with a young person can bring.
