About Us

Fixers is a unique charity which helps young people to ‘fix’ the issues they feel strongly about.

The charity has supported thousands of 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.

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 at least one other person.

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.
