Parent organisation of Community Links, Foundation, Bridging the Gap and Foundation Living

About Us

We are Inspire North, and we’re here to create a world where everyone matters.

We set out on this journey in 2018 when we brought together the work of Community Links and Foundation, two outstanding charities with decades of experience in mental health and housing. As a parent organisation we bring together this expertise and find innovative ways to provide the very best for the communities we serve. We provide award-winning services and accredited training in mental health, wellbeing, housing and domestic abuse. We work across the north of England, from Durham to Greater Manchester.

Our values are simple, yet drive and motivate us to excellence every day.

People are the heart of everything we do at Inspire North, and we strive every day to build brighter futures for the people who use our services. We engage our colleagues and people who use our services to build a sense of community and shared success. We want everyone to play a part in creating our vision.

Integrity is our cornerstone; we will always do the right thing. We work hard to make sure our services offer the highest quality and professional standards, and that people are treated fairly and honestly.

Passion is what fuels us. There’s no better feeling in the world than making a positive difference, and that spurs us on to always go the extra mile – for the people who use our services, for each other, and for our vision of creating a world where everyone matters. We have the brightest and best innovative minds working every day to do more, and to do it better.
