Westgate Ward: A Community in Need


ICM works in the heart of Westgate Ward, an area that grapples with significant deprivation and challenges. According to the Indices of Multiple Deprivation, this ward ranks among the most deprived areas in the UK. In the face of economic hardship and limited opportunities, ICM is unwavering in its commitment to empower this community through creativity and lifelong learning.


The Big Give: Amplifying Hope and Impact


The Big Give's matching model is a lifeline for communities like Westgate Ward. For every pledge made, The Big Give steps in with a match, effectively doubling the value of your donation. This means that your contribution holds the power to ignite a wave of positive change, breaking barriers and creating lasting impact.


The Impact of Your Pledge: Transforming Lives


Your support has the potential to address critical issues in Westgate Ward:
