The Inspire Me project works across the UK to change the lives of 20,000 young people with a learning disability, their families and communities. The project is supported by The Co-operative Charity of the Year partnership.
The project aims to support young people with a learning disability to become equal citizens, to aim high and to fulfil their dreams. We want to challenge the barriers that lead to exclusion, lack of progression, unfulfilled young people and wasted lives. And we want parents to have ambition for their children too.
In Wales, Inspire Me will work with young people aged 16 to 25 to improve the skills and opportunities available through ‘Inspire Me’ workshops in schools and colleges.
Through Inspire Me, we are also able to deliver free learning disability awareness training to organisations and businesses across Wales.
A member of the Inspire Me team has been chosen as an Olympic torchbearer.
