Mentoring Plus has been mentoring young people in need of extra support across B&NES for 15 years. We also have extensive experience working in a number of secondary schools.
The service Mentoring Plus provides is invaluable. Students with challenging behaviour really benefit from having someone outside of the school staff to talk to and to learn strategies to improve behaviour and avoid conflict.

Tom was causing disruption, having significant difficulties with making friends. He was struggling with understanding social situations, upsetting peers by putting others down.
Through weekly one to one support with Mentoring Plus, Tom can express his feelings and develop strategies for dealing with social situations is beginning to make new friends of his age and maintain positive relationships. Tom has been supported in joining the school football team, which has raised his self-confidence and helped him feel more content at school.
His head of year commented: “Tom’s behaviour has improved this term, he’s becoming much more confident and engages more positively with people his own age. He’s becoming more relaxed and happier at school.”
Mentoring Plus is a registered charity serving vulnerable children and young people across B&NES.
Our in-school service is designed to cover its costs, with any surplus invested in enhancing our provision with training and clinical supervision.
