Life is tougher than ever for many young people in the UK and we know that small changes can be life-changing.

Will you give up a payday treat this #Change4Change day?

TEXT 'CHANGE' £3, £5 or £10 to 70140

The confidence young people have in their emotional health is at its lowest levels, with more than a quarter of young people feeling that they're going to fail in life, according to The Prince’s Trust Youth Index 2019. 

Laura supports #Change4Change

Have you ever thought of the impact you could make if you made one small change?

Take the price of one taxi ride, a takeaway or even a coffee – something none of us would miss in the grand scheme of things. Multiply this by the number of friends, followers, colleagues or customers. If everyone donates this small change, we will have enough change to change the lives of young people.

How you can help 

We’ve worked with YouGov to identify the most common payday treats and we want you to give one treat up and donate the cost of that treat to The Prince’s Trust to change young lives.
