Inspire to Independence is a support group for young people with long term or life limiting illnesses aged 16 years plus with or without disabilities who enjoy socialising, meeting people, learning new things, planning outings, and having fun! The group meet virtually every Tuesday afternoon for support, discussion and playing games.
It is with great sadness that Mithun Soul, a member of the Inspire to Independence (ITI) Group, passed away on the 20th August aged 28 years.
He was a founding member of the ITI Group at The Bridge Transition Centre. Mithun together with other group members were instrumental from the beginning when the centre first opened in establishing the support group to help other young people with long term conditions. He was always willing to help and contribute to all the different transition activities, events and projects, with a quiet determination.
He had many talents and pursued many of his interests in photography and filming making. He edited many of our short films as well as creating images, music and sound tracks. Some of his images are displayed in the centre. He always had a smile and we shall miss his dry sense of humour.
He will never be forgotten and the work he started with members of the group we will continue...
