Good news & a DIY SOS call as Kids Inspire is on the move (in just 12 days time!)


It’s been a bumpy ride these past few months as we’ve searched for our new headquarters.

We will be forever grateful for all that support, advice and flexibility that has been extended to us as we searched for the right premises.

Throughout, we are proud to say that our professional emotional and mental health support for children, young people and their families has remained the same.

We’re so happy and thrilled to finally share that our forthcoming move will keep us in the heart of the community. Our new home, Hargrave House, opposite Sandon High School, is soon to become our new headquarters – there’s plenty of parking, facilities and importantly lots of space!

Hargrave House is absolutely perfect for delivery of our services and support, but it does need some serious TLC to transform it to its full potential – a space fit for our service users in just 12 days’ time.


We’d love for supporters to be involved in the transformation – and this forthcoming bank holiday weekend 4, 5 and 6 May is the start of the DIY that we’ll be undertaking.

What is there to do?

  • Painting & decorating
  • Clearing
  • Repairing
  • Gardening
  • Professional painting and decorating projects
  • Professional electrical projects (lighting etc)
  • Professional plumbing projects
  • Professional carpentry projects (shelves and cupboards)

Additionally, Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 May we’ll be unpacking and setting up furniture & resources in Hargrave House – we’d welcome more hands-on deck on both of these days too.

Please email louise@kidsinspire.org.uk  or call 01245 348707 if you have some free time.
