Event description


We're pleased to invite you to our Introduction to The Mix session.

This is an informal session looking at our principles and service. It will provide an opportunity for you to see whether The Mix feels right for you and equally for us to agree that we feel that you have the mix of attitudes and skills we look for in our Helpline Volunteers. You do not need to bring anything with you to the session.

If you are selected from the Introduction Session you will be sent an invitation to one of the next available courses. The next course will be taking place in May, look out for further Eventbrite invitations to our upcoming courses.

Places are limited on the Introduction Evening and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you find you are unable to attend please do remove yourself from the event.

The Introduction Session will be held at out Nottingham Offices at 6th Floor, City Gate East, Toll House Hill, Nottingham, NG1 5FS

If you have any questions please see below or get in touch.


What happens if I reserve a space and don't attend?

Spaces are really limited for these sessions and we have a lot of applicants. So if you say you can make it and don't attend we'll archive your application and you'll have to get in touch with us to let us know you're still interested.

What happens on the introduction evening?

We'll introduce you to our organisation and explain more about what we do and how we do it. There'll be interactive activites designed to introduce you to some of our policies and you'll have chance to ask any questions.

I can attend the introduction session but not the training course, can I still come to the introduction?

Yes, everyone that's attended an introduction evening will receive an invitation to a training course. If you can't attend you'll be invited to future training courses.

Do I need to attend all of the training sessions in order to volunteer?

Yes, all sessions need to be attended and completed in order.

I think I can attend all of the sessions, what happens if something comes up and I can't attend a session/s?

We try to avoid transfering people between courses, however if something unavoidable comes up and you can't attend a session let us know as soon as possible and we may be able to move you onto a later course.

Will food be provided on the full day sessions?

Yes, we provide food and refreshments during training and there are many shops and eateries near our office.

Do you cover travel expenses?

We do not cover expenses for the introduction evening. However we can provide up to £12.00 rembursement for each training session or volunteering shift. Please ensure you keep your original receipts. You can claim on expenses up to 3 months old.

When will the next introduction session and training course be taking place?

We hold training courses on a rough monthly basis. If you're unable to attend this time around we'll be in touch with future dates.

There are no tickets left, can I still come?

Unfortunately not, we have a limited capacity for holidng these events so please don't turn up if you've not confirmed your attendance. You'll be contacted again when our next course is due to start.

How can I contact the organiser with any further questions?
