Fairness, Respect Equality & Dignity (FRED) youth-led campaign
FRED is a youth-led campaign that was set up in 2020 by young people. It is run by young volunteers through social action projects and high quality youth volunteering. It is an independent entity that is hosted by the Restorative Justice for All International Institute.
FRED aims to:
- Promote the values of Fairness, Respect, Equality and Dignity (FRED), as they impact on young people especially the most marginalised communities.
- Directly support young people inependently of location through advice, volunteering, educational programmes and social action projects.
- Dispel stereotypes about young people with an emphasis on those who are at risk of being marginalised, disadvantaged or excluded due to their background, race, mental health, socio-economic status, gender, physical abilities or sexual orientation.
- Promote young peoples’ civic participation at the local, national and international level including European citizenship.

All publications must comply with our FRED guidelines outlined below:
- Published content must comply and align with FRED values of Fairness, Respect, Equality and Dignity (FRED) and in general with RJ4All values.
- When appropriate, published content should encourage to dispel stereotypes with an emphasis on young people who are at risk of being marginalised, disadvantaged or excluded due to their background, race, mental health, socio-economic status, gender, physical abilities or sexual orientation. It goes without saying that none of the content should be discriminatory against any of the above characteristics!
- Published content must follow acceptable academic standards and use references and quotes when citing other sources. But don’t panic! This shouldn’t be an academic essay! We want you to reference those ideas that do not come from your mind, but we don’t need full academic citations.
- Published content must not be politically engaged or promoting specific political parties or ideologies with a campaigning purpose. FRED and RJ4All are in fact independent, impartial and non-party political. This does not mean you cannot talk about politics if that is what interests you, but you cannot express any endorsement for political ideologies and or parties.
- Published content must not support any extreme ideology or promote any religious fundamentalism.
- Although there is no minimum or maximum word count, we recommend you write no more than 2.500 words by published piece.
- In terms of actual content, please write about whatever interests you, if you care about it!

“We are delighted to support this youth-led campaign, which finds its origin in young people’s determination to tackle some of the challenges of today’s society, such as the increase of divisions and inequalities. Spreading the principles of restorative justice, the campaign aims at celebrating diversity, as a great strength that brings us together”
“The FRED campaign is a testament of our young peoples’ determination for a change. We often blame them for apathy, but this youth-led initiative proves the opposite. I am delighted to support FRED and look forward to the 2020 FRED Awards celebrating 400 years since the sailing of the Mayflower from our local area, taking some of the first migrants to America”
“I am so happy I have the opportunity to volunteer for this project! It is incredible to me to think that so many people are benefitting from these activities, and for me to be able to open the doors to other young people to become the best version of themselves is extremely gratifying.”
Love campaigning, fundraising, art activities, promoting projects on social media? Do you want to develop many more skills such as team work and time management wich would look great on your CV? Well, Restorative Justice for All is the right place for you!
The FRED campaign will deliver several social action projects and over 200 high-quality volunteering opportunities in social activism, blogging, social media, and event management to help disadvantaged youth living in Southwark to realise their full potential.
Through these projects and opportunities we can prove that differences are a strength rather than a weakness.

The FRED campaign was set up and is run by young volunteers from all corners of the world. We are behind this website, and most of us are below the age of 25! That is why we feel passionate about providing our peers with high quality volunteering that help deliver our campaign’s mission.
