Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire
Campaign: To demonstrate the importance of youth services

Across the country, councils are making spending cuts. In Staffordshire, the doors have shut on council-run youth clubs. It’s my goal to help save these vital services for others elsewhere.

Without these valuable resources, I worry that young people could end up hanging out on the streets, be unable to socialise or worse, turn to crime.

I know, from experience, what a huge impact youth workers can have on local people and the wider community.

With Fixers, I want to share this message extensively and show how youth services can add value to society.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

Becky Daniels Jack Kurns
Rosie Brown Anthony Ofula
Weston Ton Arvindpal Chandok
Charlie Thorpe Olivia Sillwood
Wasim Ansar Mariyam Abid
Yasmin Sanghera Hollie Millington
Marine Forte Aira Grivele
Damian Harper Kristai Taylor
Simon Lescott Joe Cartwright
