Say It With Your Chest is a not-for-profit that operates across the United Kingdom. We believe in the importance of empowering young people to be the best version of themselves. To achieve this we have a specific approach when working with young people. This approach includes:

  • asking ourselves in every interaction what a young person is trying to communicate through their behaviour
  • empowering rather than rescuing the young people that we work with
  • motivating young people to take ownership of their future, their choices and the person that they want to be
  • considering the individual needs of young people
  • encouraging young people to use their voice in a positive way
  • questioning  young people on how they feel about their lives rather than assuming that we know the answer
