Founded by Chizzy Azani Ijeh in 2000, The Inspirational Women was established to provide members of the Greater Manchester community a chance to take part in a number of recreational activities. With great social activities for women, private gatherings, and educational programs — TIW has become the hub of women empowerment.​

Whether you’re looking for recreational activities or are looking for enrichment programs, TIW has something for every woman to enjoy. Over the years, TIW become a crucial part of life for people in the community and continues to be an integral part until today.

We have been making an impact on the lives of members in the community through our wide range of enriching programs and events. What started off as a big idea in a small space, has grown to be the hub for recreational enrichment.

My name is Chizzy Ijeh, I am a single mother of three girls and a qualified counsellor.


My life has been, and I know will continue to be a rollercoaster ride! What makes it all worthwhile, is the relationships I have with the people around me. 

What have I learned from my 54 years of life? The key to happiness is the healthy relationships we foster, be it with parents, partners, children, siblings, friends, or colleagues. My love for helping others and my commitment to different causes and issues is no surprise as I have always been passionate about changing the lives of people for the better, no matter who they are, what they do or where they come from. I have experienced and seen first-hand the stigma and prejudice people can suffer, as a Nigerian woman who has lived in both Germany and the United Kingdom. 

I graduated from the University of Salford with a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy Professional Practice in 2016, and I hope that I can help encourage young girls, women and the disadvantaged that it is never too late to reach your goals.

I have a passion for caring and supporting individuals with different challenges. I am a great motivator, who wants to see the best in people’s lives. I have been involved with several organisations. I am a freelance counsellor with De Butterfly CIC, where I conduct weekly Zoom sessions, about the challenges women face in today’s society. I am also currently a volunteer at Dimobi Children Disability Trust and a Trustee.

My recently launched organisation is called The Inspirational Women (TIW) - aimed at uplifting, empowering and inspiring women to stand out and make a difference. TIW aims to provide for the less fortunate, underprivileged and challenged woman. 

How do we plan on doing this? 

TIW will strive to provide charitable donations, such as livelihood support. We would like to distribute necessities to those in need, provide mentorship, talk and share workshops, introduce different skill workshops and so forth. 

At the moment, we offer fortnightly Zoom sessions, where we share and discuss our experiences, mental well-being and struggles since the pandemic hit.
