The Mix safeguarding co-design opportunity! (Wed 29th, 6pm - 7.30pm)

Hey!

I have an exciting opportunity for everyone to get involved in. The Mix is running a co-design led jointly by young people and the staff team. It will be held online, in our group chat space, on Wednesday 29th September from 6pm to 7.30pm.

This is the start of a big charity-wide conversation reviewing safeguarding at The Mix. One of the first steps is consulting with those who use our community (that’s you!) and other services.

This session will focus on what a safeguarding policy should achieve for young people and gives you a perfect opportunity to share your thoughts. We want to ensure a range of views are represented so you’re welcome, and encouraged, to attend whether you have lots of understanding of safeguarding or none!

To sign up, you can click here: https://forms.office.com/r/y0Ua8cvpM2

If you have any questions or would like to know more, drop a comment below or PM @TheMix.

I hope to see lots of you there!

Ben

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.
