Helping young people feel safe, feel heard and feel hopeful for their future

How we help

Mentoring Plus supports young people in Bath & NE Somerset who are facing challenges. We help 5-25 year olds feel connected through award-winning mentoring schemes, youth clubs and inspiring activities programmes in our community.

Shoulder to shoulder - our young people celebrate 25 years of Mentoring Plus

Our young people say it best! Mentees created this short film to celebrate 25 years of mentors standing shoulder to shoulder with young people. Three minutes of pure gold...

Become a mentor

Our volunteer mentors come from all walks of life, all age groups (over 21) and all life experiences. They are all kind, reliable, committed to a year-long mentoring relationship, and enjoy getting out and about with their mentee, following the young person’s interests and trying new things around our county. We always need our next cohort of mentors and provide full training at intervals throughout the year.

Learn new skills

As well as the rewards of making a difference to a young person needing support, volunteer mentors tell us they have learned confidence, listening and communications skills, self-knowledge and lots about what’s going on in our community. Lots return to mentor again, and some make a career change as a result.
