  • Highlight outstanding examples of young people led community projects on our website and on other publicity materials

  • Encourage youth organisations to empower young people to lead positive change through our participation framework Hear by Right, including placing  young people’s volunteering at the heart of their work.

  • Shine a light on disadvantaged young people, engaging and supporting them in community based positive change to gain a wider recognition of the value social action can bring to this group, as well as an understanding of the barriers they may face.

  • Support thousands of young people to get involved in social action in their communities through O2 Think Big, where we are helping focus on young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing youth work and mentoring help.

  • Help thousands of young people deliver social action projects in their neighbourhoods as a lead partner in the NCS programme in the North East.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
