Mixit Policy on COVID-19 Vaccinations
The Mixit Charitable Trust has established that it will be mandatory for all staff, drivers, guest artists, Alumni and volunteers to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated in order to engage with front-line delivery of Mixit core programmes, activities for, and transportation of, young people.
We recognise that individuals have the right to determine their own medical decisions and their rights should be acknowledged. If individuals have compromised circumstances and wish to discuss this policy with the organisation we will provide time well prior to any engagement for such conversations to take place.
However, pending the outcome of those discussions, Mixit reserves the right to review staff appointments and substitute guest artists, drivers and volunteers. We are committed to keeping young people safe when engaging in activities at Mixit, when in the transportation to and from our activities, and believe in the importance of ensuring all measures are in place to do so.
At all Mixit activities there will be QR Contact Tracing Codes and appropriate measures in line with government directives including use of masks, sanitisers, social distancing and working outdoors where possible.
- Mixit does not require that participating teenagers are fully vaccinated, nor that they need to show evidence of their vaccination status.
- We will do our utmost to ensure Mixit teenage participants have an opportunity to connect with professional health advice concerning any questions or concerns.
- We do reserve the right to talk with drop in adult visitors to the programme concerning their vaccination status.
- Discussion concerning vaccination status, and the organisations policy, needs to be included in the recruitment process when appointing new staff, guest artists and Board members.
In these trying times, we are committed to doing our upmost to respond in a responsible manner that is also in line with societal best practice, and changing government directives in the fluid environment. We hope to keep our communities safe and to do our utmost to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus.
