Mentoring is a service designed to offer support, guidance and assistance to young people. This service is offered over an 8-12 week period. The session are 1:1 and are adapted depending on the needs of the young person. Mentoring forms a supportive relationship between the mentor and mentee and creates a safe space for the young person to discuss any issues or behaviours they are struggling with in day to day life.
Mentoring follows a person-centred approach and puts the young person in charge of deciding what they’d like to discuss and areas of their lives they feel they need support with. Mentoring helps the young person identify and challenge negative behaviours as well as improve confidence, help maintain positive relationships and work towards their goals.
