Stay involved with Mentoring Plus

Many of our oldest participants, 15% of last year’s total, volunteered to return as peer mentors for younger ones.

Our work is a response to a real and pressing need to support young people. Not all of Bath and its surroundings are affluent. Not every family can give their children the time and resources they’d like to. But every young person deserves the chance to thrive and fulfil their potential.
