This will be run in the group chat space.

Who we're looking for?
Females and non binary individuals are welcome!
aged 13;24 and who wants to help.

What you will receive?
A £15 voucher for coming along! as well as the chance to make a difference!

When?

    Wait so it will be in group chat and not on Zoom? Just double checking because I will have to withdraw consent if it is Zoom.

    Thank you. It was confusing with what it said on the consent form thing. 😕

    Ah yeah that's cause all the other charities have used zoom but the mix decided on group chat, you can disregard anything zoom related :)

    @Emma_ sent me a message earlier to say that the focus group for 13-16 year olds has been postponed by 2 weeks because of low sign ups so there is more chance for more people to sign up. :)
