Long-term mentoring makes a real difference to disadvantaged young people
Mentoring can improve self-esteem, widen horizons and raise aspirations.
It can help young people learn to control their anger; prevent them getting into dangerous situations and stop them from causing harm or damage to themselves or people and things around them.
If only for a short time each week, it can give them the opportunity just to be children – to enjoy a picnic, jump in the surf or critique the current fashion trends without worrying about what else is going on in often chaotic young lives.
Professional agencies, children themselves or families can ask for a mentor. Please find the referral form and lots of other information on the website.
