Welcome to the Bring About Change programme for young people aged 11+.

Building on almost 15 years' successful delivery of our Make a Difference Challenge for younger children, Bring About Change is designed to support groups of older young people - in school or in a community group - to deliver youth-led community action projects.

Our simple framework will help you provide your young people with the opportunity to identify and research a social or environmental issue that they feel passionate about, then make a difference to this through awareness raising, fundraising or taking practical action.

Thank you
