Inspire to Independence

Inspire to Independence (iti) is a self-help support group for young people with life limiting and life threatening illnesses.

The group meet every Tuesday at 1.30pm at The Bridge, St Marks Road, Tipton, DY4 0SL.

Their meetings have included various speakers and activities, for example help with finance and setting up a social enterprise.

The group was established in 2014 by a group of young people with support from Murray Hall Community Trust and Acorn’s Children Hospice.

They have won a photographic competition showcasing how they support through communication and have designed a leaflet and shot and edited a film to encourage other young people to join the group.
