Lyfeproof has partnered with a local festival to bring you event management experience opportunities. Simmer Down Festival 2017 is looking for volunteers to help make sure the festival runs smoothly and everyone has a great time. The Reggae and World Music festival is free and open to all. It has a range of acts across two stages and a belly-bursting variety of food to taste. Simmer Down Festival will be headlined by internationally acclaimed Jamaican Reggae artist Freddie McGregor. And is expecting a large number of people to attend.

Our Vision: Imagine a world where people understand their brains enough to make better decisions, then imagine fully understanding money to never be at its mercy; now thread both with individual and collective purpose so that poverty and disadvantage can be overcome for generations to come.  

Our Mission: Lyfeproof works to help young people towards well being. We aim to do this by what you see (online experiences with us), or what you feel (our events, workshops or programmes).
