About Think Big

What we do

Young people are full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm. But they need the right support to turn their ideas into reality.

That’s where Think Big comes in. We find young people with great ideas and help them get going by giving them the training and funding to make their ideas work.

O2 is the driving force behind Think Big because we believe in the power of young people and their ideas. And as one of the biggest companies in the UK, we can back them. Invest in them. Campaign for them. Give them a platform and a voice.

We want to change the way young people think about themselves and their communities. And in doing so, change the way young people are perceived.

Meet the team behind Think Big
