A teenager from Liverpool is showing young people, who are dealing with traumatic experiences like abuse, that they don’t have to face them alone.
‘Robyn’, whose real name has not been used, wants others to know that they can ask for help to move on with their lives.
‘Abuse of all kinds can leave a lasting impact on a young person,’ explains Robyn.
‘This is why I think adults should be educated in this matter so they can help to stop it happening, and at the very least, be there for those who’ve gone through it.’
With Fixers, Robyn has helped produce a film to highlight that help is available.
An actress plays the role of a young person who has had a traumatic experience. She is seen struggling to cope with it until she reaches out to someone close to her.

‘The film is great. I was overjoyed when I saw it,' Robyn says.
'It does exactly what I wanted it to do.
‘I believe that victims of abuse can sometimes feel rejected and ignored, which is what I hope this film addresses.’
Robyn hopes the film will be shared on social media and shown to students at schools and colleges.
‘I just want as much awareness of this issue as possible,’ she adds.
‘The best way of doing that is by encouraging people to watch the film.
‘We need to stop turning a blind eye to this problem and ensure that we help those in need.’
