Daniel supports Get Connected

Daniel is lending his support and made a generous donation to a UK charity called Get Connected, which is a confidential, free, national helpline for young people under-25 who have a problem but do not know where to find help. Get Connected is there for young people in need of help no matter what the issue, from eating disorders to abuse, homelessness to pregnancy.

“I am delighted to pledge my support for Get Connected, and mark their 10th anniversary by becoming their first Best Friend. The free confidential helpline finding young people help for any problem is a vital and unique service. We live in a world that is so full of choice and information; it is often impossible to know where to turn or what to do." "Get connected" article
Fiona Clark, Interim Chief Executive of Get Connected, added:
We feel extremely privileged that Daniel Radcliffe has chosen to support Get Connected and help us launch our new Friends scheme in such an exciting way. His generous contribution will assist us immensely as we work towards raising greater awareness among young people and expanding our services to be available for young people whenever they need help. We are hopeful that Daniel's big-hearted commitment will encourage others to follow his lead and also become a Friend of Get Connected to help us make a difference to thousands more young people
