Thread & Fable is an award-winning marketing and communications consultancy. We’re small but perfectly formed to scale up to suit the needs of the clients we work with. We’ve worked closely with in-house teams, managed and collaborated with other agencies as well as delivered support on an interim and campaign basis. This means we get to work in lots of different environments and teams, keeping our thinking fresh and our work effective.

Read our Engaging Youth 2019 report, a review of over 40 research reports on children and young people, their lives and influences in the UK.
Just before our Engaging Youth 2020 dropped, the Covid-19 pandemic shook life as we know it. This years’ report has been edited to take into account some of the early insights on the impact of lockdown on children and young people in the UK and ask some of the questions we should consider when looking to engage youth audiences over the coming year. We hope it’s of use!
