Olivia Inspires was set up to allow the spirit of New Forest student, Olivia Burt to live on after her tragic death in 2018, by helping young people to achieve their potential. Olivia Inspires assists young people aged 11 to 18 years, who live in or are educated in the New Forest District Council area and who are facing financial hardship. The charity awards grants, normally no more than £500, to provide items or services to enable them to develop their potential in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), the arts and sport. The applicant might need funding for a course that will change their life; they may need to buy sports equipment: pay for music lessons: or go on a school trip to the theatre. Whatever it is, Olivia Inspires is there to support them.
