Fundraising to help recruit, train and support community mentors for young people
Mentoring Plus supports young people aged 7-21 struggling with education, family, poverty or isolation by matching them 1 to 1 with trained volunteer mentors. Young people at risk of offending, school exclusion or emotional harm benefit from a listening ear, time to reflect and access to new activities and interests. Mentees are helped into work or education, and supported to cope with difficulties and make positive choices. They gain skills, confidence and positive aspirations for the future.Why the community needs us
Young people value their community supporting them. Many teenagers struggle in the classroom or with friendships due to poorly met needs or difficulties at home. We're fundraising to help young people in our community to reach their full potential, matching them with trained and supported community mentors for a year of weekly meetups, plus access to our inspiring programme of activities. Young people tell us they feel happier, more confident and positive about the future.Our impact on the community
Support for 50-60 adult volunteers from our professional practitioners. Please help us now with a one-off or direct debit donation and your support could be doubled by Localgiving.
You'd be amazed at the impact you can have. In just a couple of hours a week, you can mentor a vulnerable young person struggling with school and family and transform their life. Mentoring Plus trains and supports you throughout..
