WHY WE EXIST

Growing up as a young person in Britain is not easy. We are often referred to as the apathetic generation and in most cases, the generation that is not worth engaging with because we are less likely to vote. There are 7.4 million 18 to 24 year olds living in the UK and only half of those are registered to vote. Most recently, 43% of those registered turned out to vote in the UK 2015 General Elections and a reported 36% voted in the 2016 European Union referendum. This means that the majority of young people in Britain do not exercise their democratic right to vote, which ultimately shapes their future.
