Spirit of 2012 funds Inclusive Futures, a leadership and volunteering initiative which is delivered by the Youth Sport Trust and is based in nine host cities across the UK. Young volunteers in each city are guided by a Volunteer Coordinator and each city organises training camps and activities throughout the year, as well as identifying local volunteering opportunities. The project aims to change behaviour and attitudes among young people on issues related to ability, access and equality in sport.

Inclusive Futures: A Year of Success
This weekend I am heading to Loughborough to join the Youth Sport Trust’s Inclusive Futures Camp. The camp will focus on the three themes of Challenging Perceptions, Increasing Participation and Inclusive Provision. Importantly, with its talented workforce of 120 young leaders, managed by eight city co-ordinators from across the UK, it will demonstrate that a more inclusive world need not be just be a dream.
