How you can support our work
Help us to continue our work by donating to our Christmas Appeal!
For one week only (28th Nov - 5th Dec) your donations will be DOUBLED through the Big Give.
We receive no regular funding and rely on donations and grants to fund our vital work. With your support we can continue to empower hundreds of people every week to transform their lives.
We are a registered charity and need the support of individuals and organisations to help us create a town with a more unified community with learning opportunities for all. Your gift will help our beneficiaries unlock their potential and give the widest possible access to opportunities for everyone, regardless of age, background or experience.
A £10 donation could buy a data card to give a local family of four internet access for a month.
£15 would pay for transport to a gig for aspiring musicians to learn from others in their craft.
£25 would cover the costs of one of our ESOL classroom volunteers for a week.
£50 would pay for one of our ESOL learners to sit their English exam.
£100 would buy a keyboard for a budding young musician who's keen to take it to the next level.
£250 would pay for a new tablet to loan out to one of our ESOL learners so they can join our virtual English classes.

ICM gave me all opportunities to discover and rediscover all my strengths and skills. It was and still is, my safety space where I always can count on support and understanding.
