ICM is an award-winning charity that works in the heart of Westgate Ward, an area that grapples with significant deprivation and challenges, and ranks among the most deprived areas in the UK.

Every year, ICM offers over 10,000 participations working with refugees, migrants, and young people in our Ipswich community. Our mission is to challenge inequality by empowering people to transform their lives through learning and creativity.

 

Every week we:

  • Teach English to over 300 refugees and migrants from a mix of over 25 different nationalities

  • Reach over 60 children and young people through our creative projects

  • Support over 30 volunteers in our classrooms and studios


But to continue offering such services for free, ICM needs to raise vital funds.

WHAT IS THE BIG GIVE?

The Big Give Christmas Appeal runs from 28th November (12pm) – 5th December 2023 (12pm).

Simply put – it’s a GENEROSITY multiplier. Big Give helps people match their donation, multiplying impact and make a lasting difference in the world together.

SO, FOR EVERY £5 YOU DONATE, BIG GIVE WILL DOUBLE IT TO £10 AND SO ON - DOUBLE THE DONATION, DOUBLE THE IMPACT!
