Imagine you never worried about how you looked.

Imagine you never felt a crippling lack of self-confidence.

Say you never second guessed yourself. Say you believed the person standing in front of you in the mirror was the very best that you could be.

Positive Image is about bringing together a collection of voices to ask why this dream isn’t a reality. Whether through bullying, insecurity or isolation sometimes we find it hard to look ourselves in the eye. These issues are being raised by business men and women, members of the public and high-profile celebrities and politicians.

Nearly three quarters of us experience bullying at some time in our lives. One in four teenagers is unhappy and depressed about the way they look. This is a cause and effect. Feeling we need to dress a certain way, look a certain way, to change ourselves to fit in, this all comes from a lack of self-esteem.

Positive Image brings together a collection of voices, from public life and those working behind the scenes, prominent individuals to encourage change. This isn’t a campaign that’s anti-beauty or anti-fashion. People should be free to choose what they want to feel better. Instead we want to encourage having the choice to feel that looks are not the only thing that are important.

The campaign uses ‘Donating an Hour’ as a tool for inspiring confidence in younger people – supporters give up just one hour of their time to help others, be it in a school, a workplace or in the community – and these stories are reported back.

Positive Image is a campaign to inspire confidence.
