Mentoring can take place in person or online, at school or in the community. It focuses on identifying and working towards short-term goals, coping strategies and techniques for building self-belief and resilience. 

Wellbeing Volunteer Mentors

Service Description

Our trained Wellbeing volunteer mentors offer support, motivation, and encouragement to enable young people to achieve their potential. Mentoring is a simple but effective way for one person to give their support to someone else who is going through a tough time or needs encouragement to make difficult decisions.

We help young people feel better about themselves or cope with problems at school or at home and improve relationships and family life. Mentors are carefully matched with the people they will be supporting (mentees).

They meet with their mentee in a public place, like a café, and can provide the young person with the space they need to talk about challenges they are facing. As part of our mentoring support, we invite young people to take part in activities, these include our Swingbridge Community Boats, our Allotments and other activities, to encourage teamwork and relationship building as well as improving social skills.
