How we’re run

The crime prevention work of Mentoring Plus is overseen by the B&NES Youth Crime Prevention Panel, comprising representatives from social, educational and youth services, the Police, Connexions and the Youth Offending Team.

Since Mentoring Plus became an independent charity and began operating as a limited company, the project has been managed by a board of Trustees.

Trustees bring expertise and experience from a variety of professional backgrounds including legal, publicity, mentoring, finance, the voluntary sector, business and industry. The members provide advice and guidance on project development and operational issues.
