As our name suggests, Make (Good) Trouble is a social disrupter. We exist to challenge existing norms and change entrenched ways of doing things. Our work is centred around young people’s emotional wellbeing and everything we make is developed through the eyes of the child. We actively encourage teens to think differently, to understand that they have the capacity to redesign their thinking processes and challenge and change attitudes.
Whilst our primary audience are teenagers, our productions are also aimed at anyone who wants to understand teens better including parents, carers, families, educators and policy makers. Together, we Make (Good) Trouble.
LATEST: If you’re a parent or a young person struggling to cope, or just worried about the next few weeks and months, we’ve set up a Facebook group to help you. It’s called Raising Teens in Lockdown (what else!). We’ve gathered some of our Raising Teens experts to give advice and you can also share your own ideas and tips or simply have somewhere to talk and be heard. And we have our small army of amazing Make (Good) Trouble teens on hand to help out.
We’re planning Q&A advice sessions, cook-alongs, home-based activities and more – our teens are brainstorming ideas as I type! We’ll be trialling and sharing the best ways to keep in touch with friends and family – which apps and digital media wok best, including which are free – so no one feels alone.
