Celebrating Volunteers

Their Royal Highnesses present George Yeordhaki with the Volunteer of the Year award.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry celebrated the work of volunteers and  counsellors at the Heads Together Christmas party hosted by youth support service The Mix.

The Duke and Prince Harry joined a session where counsellors and volunteers will share knowledge and get training on dealing with a range of issues, with a focus on supporting people who are suicidal and helping young people coping with homelessness. The Duchess will join a live online chat about counselling with volunteers and young people from around the UK.

Their Royal Highnesses spoke to volunteers and service users from The Mix about their personal experience of online and telephone counselling support.

The Mix gives young people aged 13-25 a helping hand to find their way through any challenge, from homelessness to finding a job, from money to mental health, from break-ups to drugs.
