The Act for Change Together Podcast platforms the experiences of young people across the UK who want to change the narrative on assumptions that have been made about them.

  • We want to tell you that we are more than the label you have assigned to us
  • We want to tell you how you can be a better ally
  • We want you to have conversations with those reinforcing these stereotypes and help us change the narrative
