Today’s young people face an unprecedented range of challenges. They are possibly the first generation worse off in physical and emotional terms than their parents. This charity’s mission is to ensure that every young person under the age of 25 can make informed choices about their wellbeing. It already makes a difference to over three million young people in the UK each year by connecting young people to experts and their peers to talk about everything from money to mental health, from homelessness to jobs, from break-ups to drugs. The list is endless.
