About Mentoring Plus

We’re an effective and ambitious local charity which delivers mentoring and activities for 7 to 21 year olds across Bath and North East Somerset facing significant challenges. We were recently awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of the difference our service makes.

Our vision is a community in which all young people thrive. Our mission is to inspire our community to raise the aspirations of our young and most vulnerable. Our model offers children and young people a mix of one to one mentoring (from volunteers and professionals) alongside a wide range of positive activities.

For the past twenty years our young people have been telling us they are happier and more confident from spending time with the project. We are proud to have delivered commissioned services for the local council over the past two decades, alongside primary and secondary schools buying in our programmes.

With your help, we will continue to inspire more local young lives.
