What We Do

I Can & I Am is a charity that seeks to inspire confidence in every individual. Our passion is to see all people with an inflated 'balloon of self belief' in who they are and what they can do.

It resonated so clearly, and I wish I’d had someone speaking to me about things like I Can & I Am when I was their age. It lands with them, and they get it. It’s fantastic!
