The Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest match-funding campaign, is back again; offering you the chance to double your donation to Mentoring Plus. We are delighted to have already received pledges for £4,000 BUT to unlock this amount, we need to raise another £4,000 IN JUST 8 DAYS!
The children we help are anxious, lonely and disconnected. This year in lockdown they missed out on many positive activities. With your support and by donating to The Big Give we’ll be able to provide fun sports, bushcraft, outdoor cookery, arts and life skills to help them feel happy and confident. We can once again reconnect them with the community and each other.
Our young people face tough challenges at home and school. The impact this year of lockdown has added to their challenges, with long periods of isolation, increased anxiety about transitions back to school and for many families, significant financial difficulties.
Young people need more support to access services like ours, helping them feel safe, confide in adults they trust and have supportive conversations with their peer group. Alongside mentoring, our activity program will meet this need with skilled professionals able to support children who are really struggling. Activities that can work safely in person but transfer online if needed maximise flexibility and numbers attending, achieving the most positive outcomes for each individual.
