What we do

Established in 2005, our vision is to help create an Ireland where young people aged between 16 and 25 are empowered with the information they need to live active, happy, and healthy lives.

We aim to educate and inform our readers about the importance of holistic wellbeing and how good health can be maintained, both physically and mentally.

We believe we should have easy access to relevant, reliable, and non-judgemental information and we are proud to provide our readers with a dynamic, responsive website full of up-to-date, factual information, free of any shame or bias.

Who we are

spunout is led by our reader community and young volunteers.

A group of 130 young people from around the country forms the spunout Youth Action Panels which provide leadership to the organisation.

Hundreds of young people volunteer their time to the work of the organisation through writing articles, proofreading content, making videos and giving feedback.

Our staff team manages the day-to-day running of spunout. Our editorial team write all of our professionally-proofed factsheets, consulting with relevant subject matter experts and other young people to ensure we provide factual and up-to-date information to our readership.

spunout also has a voluntary board of professionals who take responsibility for the good governance of the organisation. The board also ensures we stay true to our mission to be a website by young people, for young people.

All information about the governance of spunout can be viewed in our Transparency Report.
