We are extremely lucky to have dedicated professionals across the firm who can facilitate lively debate to young people on hard-to-teach topics like Brexit and fake news, and are proud to work with such a dynamic charity partner in Young Citizens. This award has given the programme such a boost and everyone involved, from the designers to the content creators, should be very proud.”
