External accreditation and awards, additional funding, customer/learner satisfaction and achievements across all service areas are just some of the highlights reported to the Place and Communities Committee by Inspire.
In Nottinghamshire we know that people love our libraries and all the services they offer to a huge range of people at every stage of life.
Four-years-on we’re just as committed, and I’m thrilled to be involved in an organisation that has now achieved so many accreditations and accolades but most importantly, I’m proud because I know how these services can help support people at the time its needed most.
Inspire work with a number of partners across Nottinghamshire and beyond and this collaborative working is key to being able to bid for national money to help keep our services thriving.
Inspire have delivered culture, learning and libraries for Nottinghamshire County Council since 2016 as an independent charitable community benefit society reported a high level of service delivery and developments against the contractual agreement with the Council.
In the review year 2019-20 Inspire reported the following selected achievements and highlights;
Reading and Libraries
Summer Reading Challenge – 9,075 children took part
Arts, culture and music
The report also updates the committee on how Inspire is supporting communities, the economy and schools during the Covid emergency.
Looking back on four years of successful delivery as Inspire, we are very proud of the services we have delivered to the people of Nottinghamshire against a backdrop of financial pressures and more recently a global pandemic. Much of this down to the dedication of our staff and volunteers, and the excellent relationships with the Council, funders, stakeholders and delivery partners.
We’d love you to join us! By becoming a member of Inspire you will be able to have your say on how the society works and develops.
