Driving Positive Change for Young People: The Mix 2021-22 Impact Report
The Mix Impact Report, 2021-22
Over the past 12 months, the team at The Mix has done incredible work to positively impact the lives of young people under extraordinary pressure, both as they seek to take advantage of opportunities and when they reach out for help in their most challenging moments. We do this at scale and interacted with some 6.4 million young people aged 11-25 last year. This report looks at the impact The Mix has had on young people’s lives in the past year and their ability to seek and find the support they need.
We worked right across the UK and reached more young people from the LGBTQIA+ community, young people from ethnic groups and those with disabilities than ever before by championing their voices and talking about the issues that impact them most. At the heart of our work is the combination of accessible technology and inspiring, dedicated people.
In the year 2021-22:
- 1,100,000 young people feel more able to cope with their situation and 1,045,000 young people formed a plan to make a positive change to their situation as a result of using The Mix website.
