About Livity Africa

Livity Africa is a company dedicated to improving the lives of young South Africans. We operate like a dynamic media business, but change young people’s lives like a charity.

We do this primarily by publishing Live Magazine, the voice of south African youth. If you want to find out about Live Mag SA you should go here if you’re a young person and here if you’re a brand or organisation and want to find out about how we can help you…

We are specialists in youth engagement. We can help your brand or organisation connect and engage with a youth audience, and we’ll do it in a way that’s good for you, good for the audience, and helps fund the social impact we create.


Livity is a socially responsible youth communications agency that works directly with young people every day to produce co-created campaigns and content for brands, broadcasters, charities and local and central government that achieve client objectives whilst improving the lives of young people.

Livity UK shares its south London offices every day with young people

Audience-focused but multidisciplinary, we are equally at home creating internationally-syndicated interactive TV shows, sustainable online communities, local peer-to-peer print campaigns and competitions, niche and mainstream PR, high-profile events, charity retail partnerships, social media strategies and tailor-made qualitative youth insights.

Sharing our open-plan offices in Brixton and Whitechapel with 12-21-year-olds from a broad range of backgrounds, we, and our clients, benefit from a uniquely deep understanding of what motivates, worries, interests and inspires young people in the UK today and precious resource of young creative talent, energy and ideas. In return the young people benefit from access to professional mentors, accredited training and equipment to produce their own print and digital media, pastoral care, training and financial support into employment, apprenticeships or back into education.

This unique model, evolved over 8 years, has placed us at the forefront of the burgeoning Social Enterprise movement, seen our client base and team grow year-on-year, win multiple campaign effectiveness awards and, just as importantly, helped hundreds of young people achieve their full potential.

    • Hey there Fix

      Thanks so much! Glad you like the mission, and totally agree with you about young people here. Are you CT-based? You should pop down and see us sometime. Cheers, Gavin

  3. I’m just so impressed with Live mag and its team of youngsters doing what they love but at the same time making a difference in SA. I’m a 22 year old blogger and aspiring entertainment journo. I’m currently running my own online mag Swagg Online (www.swaggonline.co.za). I’m CT based and so interested in contributing for Live. What can I do or who can I contact?


  4. Hi there Gavin. I absolutely love what you have done with the whole magazine and business model. I am really keen to meet you and discuss how we can work together because you will love our direction too…
    Let me know when you are free.
