Press Releases

This area is for members of the media looking for news about Fixers.

 

We have an enormous resource of stories about young people doing amazing things from all around the UK.  We can supply Fixers to talk articulately about a huge range of issues affecting young people – from tough subjects like abuse, drugs and crime, to things that are relevant to all of us such as the environment, healthy living and employment.

Here you can find our latest press releases.  Elsewhere on this site you can meet Fixers, read about the projects they’ve undertaken, and see the resources they’ve created.

 

If you need any more information, interviews or higher resolution pictures, please contact any member of the Comms team direct, or call our switchboard on
