Campaign: To challenge negative stereotypes of young people

I’m concerned about the negative stereotypes often attached to young people.

In the past, I’ve experienced people judging me for the clothes I was wearing and I felt upset that they would do so without knowing anything about me.


With Fixers, my team and I have helped create a poster campaign to try to tackle stereotypes.


We want to show that we shouldn’t put people in categories, we should get to know the individual and understand that everyone has their own story to tell.

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

 

Akshay Sodhi

Danins Brown-Hamilton

Declan Callan

Elliot Stephen

Luke Sutherland

Shereen Hussain

Stefan Gibson

Youth Social Action Fund

Our Fixers project is supported by the Cabinet Office’s Youth Social Action Fund.

As part of the Cabinet Office initiative ‘Step Up to Serve’, which is spearheaded by HRH the Prince of Wales, Fixers is working in partnership with the Youth Social Action Fund (YSAF) to offer the Fixer experience specifically to young people aged between 16 and 20 in Birmingham and parts of Kent.

Access To Music Centre, Birmingham 
Daryl Smith, course tutor at Access to Music, supports our Fix. He’s been very helpful in coordinating with Fixers throughout the project, providing information and places for us to meet.
