The Illuminate Community Group (ICG)

What is the ICG?


The ICG was set up in April 2018 to offer free practical ways to develop self-confidence, a sense of purpose and a sense of achievement. We cover a variety of activities, such as, volunteering, fundraising and preparing for the 10th anniversary celebration of Illuminate. We also regularly bring in guest speakers to share knowledge and skills on a range of topics. 


It's a relaxed and friendly environment, generally meeting weekly. Each week covers a slightly different topic. If you are unemployed or in part-time work we look forward to meeting you whether that's weekly or once every few months. 


What's coming up:


There are no meetings throughout August.

An insight from the group coordinator

I have attended the Confidence for Change course and it helped me to cope a lot better with my physical and mental health issues, which I have been battling with for 10 years. I gained so much confidence and was ready to deepen my self-exploration and the ICG was the perfect opportunity. I am really excited to see where this group goes and I hope that other members will find it to be hugely beneficial in their lives too. I look forward to meeting everyone!
