Location: Croydon, London
Campaign: To encourage young people not to give in to peer pressure

We feel that young people can be tempted down the wrong path in life if they give in to peer pressure.

It can lead to destructive behaviour – such as bullying, smoking and drug abuse.

These are decisions that can have lifelong consequences, and by the time a young person wants to change the outcome of their actions, it could be too late.

With Fixers, we want to encourage others to think carefully before following the crowd.

We want young people to take a positive direction in life, and we want the older generation to lead by example.

L&Q is working in partnership with Fixers because we recognise the positive contribution that our young residents can and do make to their communities, and we are keen to give them the right support to do this. To see the Fixer projects we have funded to date please click on the links provided. 


“Fixers is an exciting opportunity to empower young people  to make positive changes, within their communities and raise awareness of issues that affect L&Q’s young residents.” Paul Nehra, L&Q’s Community Investment Manager.
