Our work is guided by the young people we serve. It is to them that we are accountable.
The young people we serve
We are here to serve young people challenging and experiencing injustice in their individual lives and within society. We do not seek to categorise young people or reduce their circumstances to eligible checklists so this description does not attempt to be comprehensive. We work alongside these young people to bring direct lived experience into our decision making.
We are not here to serve those young people who are fortunate to have stable homes, privileged education, and access to financial and social capital.
A world where all young people have hope, access to the support they need, a stake in society and influence over their futures.
To bring lasting change to the lives of young people; investing in them as powerful forces for change and acting upon their right to be heard in pursuit of a fair and just society.
