In 2009, Fixers was rolled out across England, featuring monthly
in 11 regional news programmes. The project encouraging young
people to get involved in their communities and give them a voice
is now in its fourth year.
ITV Fixers is a major campaign created by the Public Service
Broadcasting Trust, giving young people between the ages of 16-25
the opportunity to tackle any issue that they feel strongly
To date, over 7,500 young people have taken part in more than
900 projects covering topics such as knife crime, body image,
racism, homelessness and other issues pertinent to today's youth.
Funding for the scheme is provided by the Big Lottery Fund.
To date 363 Fixers items were broadcast, amounting to over
eighteen hours of airtime.
