Mentor Questions

As you’d expect, the safety of our young people is paramount. All volunteers are subject to standard Safer Recruitment procedures. We also ask for a recent DBS* check on all candidates, and any disclosures are subject to a risk assessment process. We ask for and follow up all references with care. We have to ensure that any CV gaps are accounted for and we feel the candidate is volunteering for the right reasons

We support mentors and mentees to plan for the end of mentoring throughout their year together. We aim to connect young people to other resources in our community, and build their resilience so they feel able to move forward at the end of the year. If they need further support, our practitioner will ensure they get this. If the young person chooses to let their previous mentor know how they are getting on and the mentor agrees, that’s fine, but any ongoing contact needs to be safely supported by our professionals. We have a constant demand for mentors for new young people, and really welcome volunteers to mentor again if they can
