Speak and be heard.

Helping young people improve their speaking and communication skills.

Your voice matters.

Giving young people across the UK the skills and confidence to make their voices heard.

Every voice matters.

Helping to build a stronger society in which the voices of young people are heard, whatever their background.

Training for all.

Anyone can improve their public speaking skills and confidence by signing-up for our one-day courses.


We unlock the potential of young people by building their confidence and improving their ability to express themselves verbally.

We provide these essential communication skills for some of the most disadvantaged young people in the UK, including the homeless, young carers and those in pupil referral units.

Our vision is that every young person is able to speak confidently and be heard.

But we can only do this with your help.  We work with schools, charities and businesses to make this impact.

Find out how you can support the work we do.



We are committed to making a meaningful difference to young people’s lives by developing their skills, confidence and sense of agency.

Every day, we measure our reach and the impact of our programmes through outcomes such as increased confidence, increased oracy skills and increased empathy with other people’s perspectives.  These data help us continually develop the work we do and innovate new programmes.

Because we are committed to transparency in reporting, we publish our impact data online daily using an externally validated impact framework.
