Launched in 2017 by independent not-for-profit publishers NRG Collective Ltd, creators of Rare Revolution magazine, this annual programme works with the young rare community to ensure their voices are heard through the creation of their own dedicated Youth Magazine.
Giving complete control of topics, assignments and design to the young editorial team The Rare Revolution Team in collaboration with the RareTogether project support all aspects of their journey to support the successful launch of their final publication.
The 2017/18 Youth Team out and about on assignment
We are proud to continue our support of this great initiative, as part of Sobi’s commitment to the rare disease community. It is wonderful to see such a brilliant 2017/2018 Rare Youth issue of the magazine, and to hear from the vital and vibrant young voices which make up the community. We would encourage as many young people as possible to get involved in the coming year, to share their stories, and continue to build on the success of the #RareYouthProject
Neil Dugdale, General Manager, SOBI UK and Republic of Ireland
The #RareYouthProject recently celebrated Great Ormond Street Hospital hosting the 2017/18 Rare Youth Edition through all 415 of their bedside interactive screens allowing an extra 40,000 young people each year to have access to this resource.
“The project’s aim is not purely about ‘powering up young voices’ but also provides participants with valuable real-life work experience often not available to young people with complex health needs as well as an opportunity to meet other young people who share their challenges. We are thrilled to have Sobi’s support with our 2018/19 project.” Rebecca Stewart CEO NRG Collective Ltd.
