Young people are 100 per cent of our future, and we believe in that future.
Every day, thousands of young people wrestle with finding their place in the world. The pressure of social media, confusing messages around education and training, and a lack of joined up thinking when it comes to supporting their future aspirations all make a significant impact on their confidence, resilience and motivation.
MyNeedToLive is dedicated putting Purpose Before Profit and giving young adults a voice.
Our digital community is a mechanism for real change. We support young adults to find their unique voice and giving them a platform from which to communicate.
These are real stories, real lives from real people, just like them.
With your help, we can evolve, grow and continue dedicate our effort to supporting young adults to build real life route maps while gaining accreditation and supporting their peers.
Since we began in 2019, we have supported young people to become Everyday Role Models, share their stories without the filter of social media and gain the resilience they need to face and shape their futures.
We initiated an accreditation scheme, have brought on additional team members and become a Community Interest Company to show the world we always put Purpose Before Profit and young people at the epicentre of our work.
Below, Everyday Role Model Lisa Alioto Explains why our Digital Badges are a good resource for young people.
£50 helps us mentor and support a young person to create content which makes a difference to their peers. £200 could sponsor one of our ERMs while they gain accreditation. Or your organisation can advertise your services through sponsored pages, or click through signposting.
Every pound you give is poured back into empowering young people.
By collaborating with us you are helping turn aspirations into action.
Whether you want to grow your skills, get picked up by an employer who needs your specific knowledge, earn more qualifications for your CV, or some combination of the three, the My Need to Live community is here to support you.Join the platform

Growing up I was often the overweight kid as I think back over my life, taking a looking into my history and the photo album. Pictures of my youth as a young boy who had a normal weight, thin and healthy but as I got older my weight ballooned as I looked no longer healthy. […]
Let’s face it, asking for help sometimes can be tough. It may feel like we are admitting that we don’t know something that we feel we should. Or perhaps we are nervous that someone will laugh at our question. Or be bothered by it. The reality is actually quite different. Most people LOVE to be […]
