Hey Everyone,

I’m Leon and I’m head of Services at the Mix! My role’s a bit of a mouthful but I’m responsible for all of the Mix’s services that provide direct support; The Mix’s Community, Helpline, Counselling & also the Volunteer and Training that supports all of that work. I am also The Mix’s Designated Safeguarding Lead – so I also take a lead for all the different systems, processes and actions we take to keep people safe and to prevent harm. If you’re interested there’s a bit more info about me on the Mix’s website: https://www.themix.org.uk/about-us/staff

It’s really important to me that I’m involved in helping to deliver the support in the services I oversee; so will always jump on the helpline, or delivering training to volunteers and moving forward, Supporting community team with boards and in chats! but because of the nature of my job that won't be as regular as it will be for @Aife,@Mike,@Connor or @Emma. So, I may not get a chance to interact with you all as consistently as they do, but looking forward to chatting and meeting you all 😊

    Welcome @Leon ! 💜💜
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
