Independent Lives is proud to announce a community concert to help raise funds for the essential services we provide. We are very pleased to be supported by Ratcliffe Creative a music production and performance company run by Nigel Ratcliffe.

Nigel is supporting Independent Lives because:

“Independent Lives have supported my wife and me to employ carers for my daughter since she was five years old. She turned 19 this year and throughout all that time they’ve always been there for us. I hope the community concert will be a chance to bring people across Worthing together for a fantastic night of music all while raising money for a very worthy cause.”
