Take the Lead Stories

Take the Lead Stories is a unique compilation of stories written by young adults who have experienced adversity in their lives.

The project has been designed and led by Leaders Unlocked intern, Romaine Murchison, working collaboratively with young adults with a range of life experiences including school exclusion, the care system, and the criminal justice system.



"There has been a real culture change at the top - this has been the biggest element. We had such a challenge as to how to engage thousands of young people in Nottingham, a massive generational gap, we spoke a different language, it was overwhelming. Leaders Unlocked has helped us to bridge that gap and now we understand each other more."
