Fixers is running a campaign for one month only to raise essential funds, allowing us to continue supporting young people across the UK. After giving 23,000 young people a voice, the charity is now running as a legacy charity and hopes to raise £5,000, ensuring the legacy of Fixers and the incredible archive of youth-led resources endures.
In 2019 Fixers ceased operating day-to-day activities. The legacy of Fixers is now being run by a board of volunteer trustees and one staff member working one day per week.
Due to their diligent work, the Fixers website and it's social platforms have been kept alive and accessible as a legacy of the incredible amount of resources that young people from across the UK have made. We want to ensure that these campaigns and stories stay in one place, and available for another generation to use.
With £5,000, we can maintain the website as a database and usable resource. Young people and non-profits use our website frequently as a trusted source of experience-based resources on the issues young people face. This funding will also allow us to continue working with our Youth Advisory Board, who in their first 6 months have made a huge impact.
With almost 2,500 youth-led resources available on our website and socials, on topics ranging from gangs to suicide to mental health during Covid-19, keeping these free to use for young people and non-profits is imperative. The dream is for Fixers to be operational again, giving young people the platform to have their voices heard again. Until then, we will intend to raise Fixers’ profile and keep the resources available for all.
All funds raised, above or below our April Appeal £5,000 target amount, will gratefully go towards core running costs of the charity. If we were to raise an excess amount, these funds would go towards engaging with Fixers, new and old, to find new and unique ways that young people can be involved in the future of the charity.
