On the 18th April Chloe joined young people from across the UK to attend the FIXERS day conference exploring how to support young people around body image. The day included workshops to do with body image at school, in the health service and in the media and concluded in a panel lead by Positive Body Image Ambassador and Coronation Street Actress Melissa Johns.
Fixers is an initiative-led Public Services Broadcasting Trust that inspires young people to make a change and raise awareness of issues that are important to them. ‘Young people using their past to fix the future.’ The content certainly gave everyone a lot to talk about and food for thought on how we could challenge negative body image stereotypes in our lives and maybe some ideas about our own Fixers campaign in Bucks.
