LATEST ON THE ILRC: Independent Living Resource Centre :

Bright Lives has come a long way, we developed the programme to teach independence to a cohort of eight students, these students are now volunteering and fund-raising for large charities as well as living a full life after just three years in our centre.

This new programme will expand on the success as we make this opportunity available to a large cohort.
This is a great opportunity, call today for further details: 01206 615165 or email
