Family Support

Mentors work 1:1 with either a young person or a parent, providing a ‘professional friendship’ for those who require long term ongoing support. Mentors don’t need to be experienced, as we offer a comprehensive training programme, but they need to be passionate about helping others, and committed to 1-2 hours per week for at least 6 months.
