About Making Generation R

Learning to be resilient can make a big difference to young people that struggle with feelings of anxiety and self-esteem. One of the most effective ways to encourage resilience is through inspiration from others who have overcome difficulties in their lives.

That’s why the Making Generation R campaign supports injured veterans to take their inspiring stories about overcoming adversity to schools across the UK.

Over 23,000 students have already benefited from a free workshop.
