I believe in the power of youth. Young people are 22% of our population and 100% of our future. It’s time we viewed them this way.

Saeed Atcha MBE DL is an inspiring CEO, Speaker and Changemaker having worked to make the world a better place for all young people, for a decade.

Having grown up in care, Saeed is acutely aware of how young people from disadvantaged backgrounds can be overlooked when it comes to learning valuable life skills and having a voice in their future.

Saeed’s work is all about equity, diversity and inclusion with a view to reducing inequalities in society today.
