Inspiration Trust seeks your help.

I WOULD be delighted if your readers will join me today in helping to make a difference to the lives of over half a million British young people facing adversity through the launch of the British Inspiration Trust.

BRIT is a visionary charity focused on using inspiration to help young people facing adversity regain their self-belief to make aspiring choices. The charity will champion and engage with 600,000 young people facing adversity. I am going to do this by partnering with charities, support groups and those currently working to assist young people facing adversity and support them by providing an interactive BRIT support map that makes support easy for young people to find. I will ask inspirational figures to act as mentors.

BRIT defines young people facing adversity as those between 16-25 with a physical or mental disability, deprivation, injury, our wounded and young carers.

It is my aspiration to find financial support from philanthropists and high-net-worth individuals who together will build a pounds 15m national Centre of Inspirational Excellence.

I would be grateful for your readers to identify inspiring individuals from their own community and those young people facing adversity who could continue to help us steer and shape our mission and to support BRIT. For more information, I urge readers to go to www.facebook.com/BRITinspiration, www.britishinspirationtrust.org.uk PHIL PACKER MBE, founder and non-paid chief executive of the British Inspiration Trust
