Inspire Me

Changing the lives of young people with a learning disability


The Inspire Me project began in 2011 and provided practical activities, training and community learning to give young people aged 14-25 with a learning disability the opportunity to build their confidence and learn new life skills.

The project gave young people with a learning disability the chance to change their lives by developing skills and changing attitudes in society.

Inspire Me achieved this through workshops covering subjects such as money management, preparing for work and confidence and motivation. It also gave young people the opportunity to design and deliver their own Community Impact Projects to improve the lives of others in the community, allowing them to experience volunteering.
