About KISS Life: Let's Talk About...
The Prince’s Trust believes that every young person should have the chance to succeed in life, so they help 11 to 30 year olds who are unemployed or struggling at school to transform their lives; helping to get them into jobs, education and training. As part of KISS’ partnership with The Prince’s Trust, KISS have launched a podcast series called ‘KISS Life: Let’s Talk About…’ which aims to highlight some of the issues that affect young people and will offer help and information on how The Prince’s Trust is empowering young people to turn their lives around.

In the final episode of the series, KISS and Alex Mansuroglu investigate why a rising number of young people are getting involved in gangs. We speak to some of the people around the country working to give them an alternative choice – as well as a teenager who opens up about the struggles of leaving a gang once you’re in one. We talk to a lawyer about the realities of the justice system, and we hear exclusively from the mum of Jaden Moodie, one of the youngest people to lose their life to knife crime in 2019. We also look at the work being done by groups like The Prince’s Trust to help break the cycle of gang crime. If you are affected by any of the issues covered in this podcast, visit The Prince's Trust's website for more information and keep it KISS on how The Trust transforms young people’s lives.
Our full interview for KISS Life: Let's Talk About... Careers with influencer and entrepreneur Grace Beverley. Grace talks to KISS' Swarzy Macaly about how she got her businesses off the ground, things she learned on the way and any advice she'd give to budding entrepreneurs who would like to launch a business of their own.
When it comes to careers, research by The Prince's Trust shows more than HALF of us put too much pressure on ourselves to succeed. In this podcast, KISS and Swarzy Macaly look at the world of work and investigate some of the barriers to getting a job. We chat to influencer and entrepreneur Grace Beverley to get some advice about how to turn an idea into a business - as well as people working in the medicine, magazine and social housing industries who all faced their own struggles to get their dream job.

In this podcast, KISS and Daisy Maskell investigate the pressures young people are facing when it comes to body image. In a world where so much focus is placed on appearance, we ask how things like social media and reality TV are impacting on the way young people feel about themselves, and how damaging it can be to compare yourself to others. We hear from one girl who was sacked from her job as a dancer for "being too big", and the self-proclaimed body confidence spreader Chessie King guest stars in the episode. She's encouraging us to 'look behind the filters' and recognise that not everything we see online is realistic.

In this podcast, KISS and Andrea Zara investigate the rising levels of mental health issues among students, as teachers and charities tell us they're seeing record numbers of young people who're struggling. We speak to students who've faced struggles at school and uni - as well as the mother of a 15-year-old boy who tragically took his own life whilst revising. We also look at how The Prince's Trust is helping young people find success - even if they didn't get the grades they were aiming for.

With knife crime at a record high across England and Wales, KISS and Tyler West investigate why so many young people are picking up blades - and explores the devastating consequences of using one. We speak exclusively to the family of Jaden Moodie, the youngest person to lose his life to knife crime so far this year. We hear from a London surgeon who operates on two stabbing victims every day - and we look at the ways young people are breaking out of the cycle with help from The Prince's Trust.
