About us
We’re an effective and ambitious local charity which delivers mentoring and activities for vulnerable 7 to 21 year olds across Bath and North East Somerset.

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 young people a mix of one to one mentoring from local volunteers with a wide range of positive activities.

Volunteer mentors are one of our most valuable assets, and we have a continued demand. We currently train about 45 volunteers per year.

For the past twenty years our young people have been telling us they are happier and more confident from spending time with the project.

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