Opportunities for Peer Mentors!
Sometimes being in care can be hard. Not everyone knows what it’s like, but if you've been there you probably do.
We need volunteer mentors who have personal experience of Care or Children’s Hearings and now have time to give to individuals walking the same path. If you can help, we want to meet you. As well as giving 1-2-1 support, there is a place for groups and fun activity. In return for your time, we offer training, support and cover expenses. We will learn together about what is helpful to young people.
This work is supported with funding from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by the Big Lottery. For more information, please contact
Our organisation is governed by a Board of Directors:
