We are a charity, seeking to educate young people under the topics of Health and Crime. Exploring their decisions, misconceptions and experiences, to positively enhance their futures.
At Let's Get Talking we work directly with young people in many places such as Schools and Youth Clubs, currently we are working our way through London delivering resources and workshops to the most in-need areas. We are an expert medium for exploring adolescent issues, this is achieved by a method of learning conversation and discussion without pressure.
Being a charitable organisation we bear no ties with schools or authorities, making young people feel confident and comfortable when speaking and conversing with us and among themselves, no judgements are made and conversation, no matter how sensitive, is allowed to be freely spoken about.
The charity was established in 2012 by our founder Sue Scott-Horne.
