My Life My Say empowers young people to participate in democracy, by creating spaces for dialogue across communities and generations, and by providing young and socially excluded citizens with the tools to lead change within society.

  • We make politics fun and inclusive to those who wouldn’t ordinarily engage in traditional forms of democracy.
  • MLMS seeks to represent the views of young people to stakeholders and decision makers at a local, national and international level.
  • The Common Futures Forum aims to inspire, empower and connect young and socially excluded citizens to lead change, by providing them with the platform to shape society. 
  • We offer consultancy services to Governments, corporates and third sector organisations to help provide invaluable insight from young people.

Work supported by Act for Change Fund

This grant supports the continued development of the Groundbreaker Fellowship programme, which provides training sessions in mobilisation, public speaking, fundraising, media/communications and branding to young people who want to lead change.


Young people! Have you ever realised the power of your vote? Your voice? Your activism? Your petition? Your social media post? Every single action counts and gets us all closer to a fairer and more inclusive democratic system.
