Premier League Inspires was launched in 2019 and creates life-changing opportunities for young people who have been identified by their schools as needing extra support, helping them to develop the personal skills and positive attitudes needed to succeed in life.
Using the power of football, the programme helps to prepare 11- to 25-year-olds for further education and employment through a series of face-to-face mentoring sessions, workshops and social-action projects.
The Premier League and the Professional Footballers' Association has invested more than £9.8 million into the programme, through the Premier League Charitable Fund (PLCF).
