Fixers is a national charity championing the potential of young people. We empower them to transform their lives through positive social action. We believe young people count. They have the passion and enthusiasm needed to make the world a better place and by getting involved in social action they can create profound change – for themselves and for society.
Since 2008 we have worked with over 23,000 young people, the majority of whom are vulnerable or marginalised and face many different issues including exploitation, sexting, mental health, knife crime, drug use, poverty and homelessness.
Our mission is to enable them to deliver a high impact campaign that not only builds their own sense of self belief but is influential in the lives of other people.
We invest in them through mentoring, we connect them to support organisations who can help with presentation, leadership and social media skills, we link them with government agencies, PCCs, health services and local authorities, we create opportunities for them to speak in schools and youth clubs and we amplify their voices through digital platforms, conventional media and public events.
These steps help institutions understand how to address issues facing young people; enable peer-to-peer education and help them spread their message to thousands of others.
£5,000 enables one young person to receive mentoring, digital skills training, leadership development and more.
Your donation, however big or small will make a real difference.
Thank you so much for your support.
Fixers aims to:
- Make Young People Count. Encourage and support them to share their lived experience and use it to bring about profound social change through interventions at the personal, local and national level.
- Reach young people with limited access to opportunities for social action but who have the potential to gain the most.
- Support young people to contribute to work being done by the government, police, health services and local authorities, enabling institutions to understand how best to address the issues they face.
- Give young people a sense of purpose and social responsibility along with the courage and conviction they can change the world.
