#iwill work with young people across the UK as young as 10, to do inspirational things in their communities to help others.
Over 700 organisations, including LoveBread have pledged #iwill, to encourage young people across the UK to take part in social action.
Working with business, education and voluntary sector partners, the #iwill campaign aims to ensure that all young people can access social action opportunities, whatever their background, as involvement in social action strengthens communities and enhances the skills of young participants.
