Support the next generation of
independent, critical thinkers.
Debating Matters gives young people the opportunity to confront the key issues of our time and creates engaged, rounded, confident young people. It encourages the next generation to go beyond the headlines and understand both sides of the argument. When so much is being questioned, Debating Matters provides the tools for serious, critical and impassioned discussion.
Become a DM Angel and help young people to keep debate alive.
DM Angels provide regular, ongoing financial support to the competition. These regular donations, income we can count on, are the lifeblood of small charities such as ours. To recognise this support, those who give £10 a month or more join the Angels’ Hall of Fame below, as well as receiving regular updates from the competition.
Select a £10 monthly donation via donorbox (see below) and support young people to engage in debate and discussion about the key issues of our time.
The students keep asking me: what next? It is no exaggeration to say that Debating Matters has literally changed their lives. This has been the best thing in a dark time.”
