In a nutshell, this project aims to inspire young people and their parents who are living in IP2 to believe that they can all achieve their dreams.

To believe that anything is possible. To believe that the place where you are born doesn’t restrict you. It defines you for the better.

Towards the end of 2015, some of the educational establishments in the IP2 postcode area of Ipswich came up with an idea. They wanted to reach out and find inspirational tales of people who had grown up in IP2.

A brochure was created that contains eleven of those stories.

Each story is different. But in many ways each story is the same. Each individual has been dedicated to getting to where they want to go. Each individual has been guided by their parents, good teachers and supportive friends. They have all had a superb work ethic and a positive attitude.

The stories might make you cry or laugh or make you angry at times. But hopefully they will inspire young people and their parents living in IP2 – and anywhere else for that matter – to think positively about their futures and believe anything is possible.
