Get Connected is turning 16!
Over the last 16 years our service has grown from a small helpline to support young people who had run away from home, to a multi-channel helpline service which supports anyone under 25 with absolutely anything.
We’ve supported more than 800,000 children and young people in crisis over the last 16 years, but so many more still need our help.
Has Get Connected helped you get your life back on track?
Do you have great advice to pass on to help someone out?
We’re looking for young people who want to help others find a solution to a problem they have faced. If you’re aged 16-25 and want to help, submit a two minute video and not only could you help another young person find a brighter future, you could be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize!
Here’s the Get Connected Youth Advisory Panel to let you know more about our service and why you should get involved!
