Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Tell Your Story - Do It Day

    Hey everyone,

    The Mix are looking for young people to share their stories.

    What are we trying to do?
    Young people get a bad showing in the media. Reports and surveys online indicate that the majority of media portrayal of young people is negative. Either itís knife crime on the front page or itís condescending storylines about hipsters and their supposed obsession with avocados and lattes.

    The Mix, a charity that provides support for under 25s and The Drum, a global media platform , are coming together for Do It Day on the 16 November 2017 to create an alternative 6 oíclock news bulletin, produced with young people, for young people.

    The bulletin, containing empowering stories about the strength of young peopleís characters, will play out to an audience of over 18 million via The Mixís YouTube channel and media and advertising.

    Your Story
    The idea is an alternative, positive news that tells a different kind of story about young people.

    Have you got a story, an anecdote, an experience that you could tell the world about? One that contradicts the image of the youth of today as lazy, latte-drinking time wasters? Shout it out in a video and send it in.

    Are you a vlogger who has taught yourself to be digitally savvy and effectively started your own business? Tell us about how that defies the negative storylines.

    Is there a place, an idea, a conversation that would let the world know all the youth of today is capable of? Maybe itís a story about a friend, or of a young person that inspired you. Tell us!

    If you'd like to take part or have any questions, let us know by sending us a PM and we can put you in contact with the team running this.

    Deadline for submissions are Saturday 4th November!

    We're Aife & Mike: the staff team here at The Mix.
    If you have any questions about this place, feel free to
    ask over in the
    Help Desk or send us a private message.
