What is mentoring?
Mentoring is spending time one to one regularly with a kind and empathetic adult.
Our mentors are positive role models, who will:
- Meet with you each week for 1-2 hours (depending on your age)
- Support and encourage you
- Listen and not judge
Having a mentor can be life changing, and help you to feel:
- Happier and more confident
- Able to connect and engage with school / education
- Better about relationships with friends and family
- More optimistic and hopeful

Our Mentoring Programme - who we support
Through our Mentoring Programme, we can match you with a volunteer or professional mentor, depending on what kind of help you need.
Whoever you're matched with, they will be a kind, empathetic and reliable adult.

When I’m with my mentor, I feel like I belong and I am relieved of stress. I feel safe and it feels like home.
My whole being. My personality. My mood swings. Everything. I’ve become a better person because of mentoring.
Having someone to talk to who was completely interested and helped me get out of the house and try new things really changed how I felt.
