A home is more than just a roof over your head. Although the places we live and people we live with differ, home is where we go to seek safety, love and shelter from the outside world.


Yet for some young people, domestic life presents many challenges and can be a source of uncertainty, unhappiness and anxiety.


Fixers are sharing their stories and opening the doors into their lives to reveal the many issues arising in the home. Highlighting topics such as being a young carer, homelessness, life as a teen parent or living in foster care, they’re using their own experiences to help others build brighter futures within their own four walls and beyond.
