"Despite the challenges of the last year, our mentors give consistent, reliable support simply by being there for their young person. When meetings couldn’t take place in school, mentors and our young people have been fantastic in adapting to video calls or emails to keep in touch. "There are many heart-warming stories of resilience. Now, we are determined to reach more young people that need a mentor.

"But on top of that, mentoring is a fun and rewarding way for people to give back. “Our existing volunteers are from all walks of life; anyone can be a mentor - you just need an hour a week and the desire to help make a difference. We’d love to hear from the local community who have lots to offer our young people.”
