Inspire is an award winning charity that was established in 1988 and is now one of Scotland’s largest charities, employing over 400 people and enabling empowerment to hundreds of children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and additional support needs throughout North East Scotland.
The organisation provides a range of more than 50 services throughout Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray including 24 hour residential care, supported accommodation, training for employment initiatives and respite care. We provide the people who use our services with the right amount and type of support so that they can broaden their horizons and access opportunities and experiences that many people take for granted.
2007 saw the creation of Inspire Ventures Ltd, sister charity to Inspire, which currently operates our social enterprise Café Coast and Meeting Rooms as well as Café Academy, a unique training for employment scheme.
