Be Unique - Body Image Project

Be Unique - Body Image Project

Many of you told us that body image is something which causes you concern. It is an issue for both girls and boys with media images (which are usually airbrushed or Photoshopped) causing you to make unfair comparisons.

Promoting positive body image is something which we feel really strongly about. We want people to feel good about themselves.

Our ‘Be Unique’ Project  aims to promote a positive body image in young people and celebrate individuality.

The project has received recognition in the form of a British Youth Council's 'Youth on Board' award and a Humber Local Enterprise Partnership 'Festival of Skills' youth-led project award. 

In addition to our Top Ten Tips Postcard [PDF, 408Kb] we have worked with students from North Lindsey College to produce a portfolio of stunning posters.  Keep a look out for these in schools, colleges, leisure centres, libraries and other public places. Or take a look at the postcards and at the posters below:
