What we do is…

  • mentor young people aged 9-19 on a one-to-one basis
  • usually for between 4 months to a year
  • mostly in primary and secondary schools across South Warwickshire


We do this because mentoring…

  • helps reduce the distress they are experiencing
  • builds their resilience and ability to cope with difficulties
  • helps young people achieve more


How it happens, step by step, is…

  • We receive an authorised 1.1 Mentoring Request form
  • If accepted, a young person is matched to a mentor usually within
    3-4 weeks
  • If declined, where possible we signpost towards other appropriate support
  • A mentor identifies with a young people what the intended aims and outcomes are
  • Mentoring sessions usually last 30-60 minutes, once per week, in a safe place (e.g. school)
  • Mentoring progress is regularly reviewed and usually closed by
    mutual agreement
  • We do not usually have direct contact with parents/carers unless it is necessary to do so
