Dixons Carphone has supported The Mix since 2001 – it’s an award winning partnership that is born out of a shared vision for the world and for young people. It works because we both want to ensure technology is used to improve young people’s lives – and we fundamentally believe digital technologies are a force for good in the world.
Through Dixons Carphone’s deep knowledge of connectivity, customers and their products and The Mix’s experience supporting young people through technology, we can ensure that every young person can access the help they need – wherever they are and whenever they want it.
“Our partnership with The Mix provides a great platform to support young people through technological innovation and offers our people fantastically rewarding and skills-based volunteering opportunities as well as exhilarating fundraising challenges.” Kesah Trowell, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Dixons Carphone.
Not only have Dixons Carphone supplied The Mix with office space, equipment and IT support, their staff have also offered incredible fundraising and volunteering efforts. This has helped the Mix support two million young people a year – a number we are both driven to grow.
The Mix has used Dixon Carphone’s funding in some really innovative ways. This includes recruiting and training hundreds of our fabulous helpline volunteers and Digital Connectors who are trained to support our young people through telephone and webchat. It has also been used to drive development of our unique mobile apps and handy digital tools which allow young people to access support wherever they are.
