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.



"In this world it’s difficult for young people to feel like they have a say or a voice, and increasingly it feels like the world we’re going to be left is pretty crazy… in the midst of that it feels like we’re doing something positive and we are taking ownership of the situation."
