Fixers is a unique project which helps young people ‘fix’ the issues they feel strongly about.
The project has already supported over 6,500 16 to 25 year olds to raise awareness and understanding of the issues they face, and highlighted their achievements on ITV.
Now, thanks to a £7.2 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund, Fixers is expanding to all countries in the UK.
Over the next four years, as the movement grows, Fixers aims to recruit a further 20,000 young people across the UK.
Fixers was established as a project of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust in 2008.
How each Fixer tackles their chosen issue is up to them – as long as they benefit someone else.
Each Fixer is supported to create the resources they need to make their chosen project a success, with creative help from media professionals.
Many Fixers chose to make a film, music video, run workshops or hold an event to encourage change in their communities.
