Here’s what current Youth Action Group members have said:

‘I am a naturally introverted person so I was nervous signing up and opening up about my birthmark. But once I met everyone, I instantly felt supported and understood. We all shared similar experiences and wanted to make a real impact for Face Equality Day. It was such a rewarding and positive experience and I’ve only grown in confidence since then!’ – Jasmine, 24 years old

‘Being a part of the Youth Action Group was a brilliant experience. I would encourage people to sign up because you will meet a range of different people and share ideas and experiences, being part of a group in general will also help you to develop social skills. “Everyone should be proud of who they are, the challenges you face make you a stronger person” ‘ – Sophie, 23 years old
