We're inviting young people and those who support them to create a million minutes of silence as an expression of solidarity for young people without a voice. And getting sponsored this Lent will help us to give a voice to those for whom silence isn't choice, those overlooked by society and who are cast out of decision making. The money will be used to provide grants for projects throughout England and Wales.

Lent arrives and sweets and chocolate are the first things to go. But instead of cutting out sugar, couldn't we use Lent to find silence? Challenge yourself and your community to cut out the noise in your life this Lent: go without Facebook or stay silent with us. Help us to do something amazing for young people.


The average young adult in the UK spends 80 minutes a day on Facebook. Over the whole of Lent that's more than 2 entire days. Imagine what you could do with that time – spend time in silence and time with your family and friends. Real people, real time. Join us and start your online fundraising now.
