Our Team

Inspire’s activities are governed by a voluntary board of trustees. It is elected at our annual general meeting to represent the interests of those to whom we provide support and services, and to offer staff guidance on the charity and social enterprise’s remit in supporting people with addiction issues, mental health conditions and/or intellectual/learning disabilities. Our board is made up of diverse and highly expert professionals from a variety of backgrounds.
