The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) was founded to support other charities and bring organisations together through collectively powerful collaborations. BRIT was established to help transform the lives of young people across the UK, between 16-25, who are facing trauma and adversity.
This would be delivered though the provision of residential and non-residential inspirational education and training for young people aged between 16 and 25 with a view to improvement of their and others’ quality of life and with a view to enthusing, motivating and encouraging young people in their ambitions and future hopes.
BRIT has entered into a collaboration to build a Centre of Inspiration and the provision of residential support will be driven forward by our Centre Collaboration Partner. This will be reflected in our Governing Article and Mission.
As a conduit charity, BRIT has taken an innovative and inclusive approach to helping young people by bringing together and developing close working partnerships with a range of UK charities and support groups. Integral to our work are the host of Inspirational British Icons from across sport, entertainments, business and the arts who have believed in and championed our vision from the outset.
The success of all BRIT activities has been underpinned by working with the gifted support of Senior Advisors, Charity Partners, Chief Executives and Inspirational Figures. These experts and professionals have shaped the vision of BRIT.
“BRIT is inspiring because it is the brain-child of the most inspirational individual, Phil Packer MBE, a person I deeply admire. I am deeply honoured that Phil has asked me to be a BRIT Mentor. I’m sure that the young people I meet will teach me more than I could ever teach them”.
Sir Richard Branson - BRIT Mentor
“As a former teacher I am only too aware of the difficult stage in life the years 16 – 25 can be. Often this group of young people can be overlooked or the road to find support is often unclear. BRIT is a revolutionary idea that can focus all charities and support groups to one clear area and allow young people to feel a degree of empowerment, allowing them to take control of their own destiny. Phil Packer is an inspirational character with a clear vision.”
Dee Caffari MBE
“We all have had to face challenges in our lives especially during our teenage years when every problem can feel insurmountable. This is why I feel the support provided by BRIT is invaluable to its beneficiaries. The tireless work of its founder Phil Packer, makes me proud to support BRIT and help out whenever I can. We all need a helping hand at some point in our lives.”
