The Key is a charity committed to inspiring young people to believe in themselves, especially those facing challenging circumstances. We work with nearly a hundred organisations across the North East who use the KEY+ Challenge to empower young people to use their voices, take part in activities and projects meaningful to them, build their skills and confidence, and become more active in their communities.
