Location: Canterbury
Campaign: To encourage young people affected by self-harm to talk to someone

Most people who self-harm don’t do it for attention. They do it because they’re hurting inside and out.

It can be difficult for young people to cope with and understand, but it’s important they know that there is help out there.


With Fixers, we want to encourage those affected by self-harm to talk to someone.


We’ve helped create a film to raise awareness of the issue and show others that they’re not alone.

Youth Social Action Fund

Our Fixers project was 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.
