Leave a lasting legacy

Thinking of making a will?

Even a small legacy can make a massive difference to young people in our community

Your legacy, large or small, will help ensure we can continue to support vulnerable children and young people. Your generosity will allow us to plan, invest in and refine our service, supporting more mentors and ensuring young people can go on feeling happier, more confident and able to overcome barriers to achieving their potential

What does your donation buy?

It buys time. Time for a young person to spend with a positive, inspiring mentor. That mentor has been recruited, screened, trained, supported and managed by our professional practitioners – but the benefit is their time. Time with mentors makes young people feel valued, confident and aspirational.

£10 Time to talk

Just £10 could provide precious time and space to chat - perhaps for a hot chocolate in a café or a board game

£50 Time to inspire

Your £50 could provide the chance to try something new - perhaps a day trip, a new activity, a play, an exhibition or a sporting event

£100 Time to connect

Your £100 could pay for a young person to make friends by joining an open youth night or group activity

£250 Time to change

Your £250 could help a young person to grow in confidence, to explore a range of opportunities, and find a new path forward

Someone is there if anything happened. It’s helped me get better at school. Before I was quite naughty – now I’m a lot better in and out of school. I’m back in class now – I used to be on my own in a room. I used to be the class clown now I’m answering questions. I’m a lot better and I can handle things – I don’t have to worry about it


Jacob has had a positive return to school and has settled back into school routines well and seems to have a more enthusiastic attitude towards classroom learning such as sharing ideas or being proud of the work he produces. He seems more confident in his ability and less likely to speak negatively about himself or his learning. His friendships within school seem much more stable currently and there are less problems occurring out on the playground. He seems more happy in himself and being at school which has been really lovely to see. He has really enjoyed his mentoring experience and I know it was something that he really looked forward to each week.’

Jacob and I had a great time. We seldom did anything special. We met every week, walked to the supermarket and bought food and a drink, then chatted. And that wasn't anything ground-breaking either. We laughed, updated each other, commented on what we saw, and discussed Liverpool football. We had a great time, we became good friends, and we both got a tremendous amount from it. I'll miss seeing him. But I hope he has a sense now of how special he is. And I hope he remembers me for being someone who cared, and who thought he had potential
