FAD is all about real fashion industry experiences and real fashion industry skills, as well as providing the personal support that young people need to fulfil their potential.  Our amazing volunteers make our projects happen, creating a supportive atmosphere and authentic, relevant, content.  Our volunteers enable young people to widen their horizons, achieve their goals and build a future in the fashion industry.

If you’re a creative professional who’d like to give something back, we’d love to hear from you.  We have volunteer opportunities from teaching and mentoring to masterclasses, modelling, events and more – training and ongoing support is provided.  Please click below to contact us about getting involved.
