Our History 

Our charity established in 2010 (The Braunstone Foundation, t/a b inspired), to carry forward the ground-breaking work and legacy created by the Braunstone Community Association (BCA), originally set-up in 2000. 
The BCA was created as a vehicle to deliver a large-scale government regeneration programme – New Deal for Communities (NDC). Much was achieved in the 10 years of the NDC programme, with over 100 projects funded to support local residents to tackle issues such as: crime, housing problems, educational attainment, health inequalities, improving the environment and engaging more people in activities to improve their day-to-day lives. 
The regeneration programme also supported the creation of many new and improved local facilities, many of which b inspired continue to own and manage to this day (see our Facilities page for more information). 
The charity – The Braunstone Foundation, is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. Registered in England & Wales No. 4029394. Charity Registration No. 1139537. It also provides services through its wholly owned trading arm – B-inspired (trading) Ltd. Registered in England & Wales No. 7445410.
