Help us raise £20,000
To keep our mentoring service going
We need to continue to support the young people in Kent with our mentoring services, demand is high with 250 young people on our waiting lists but are losing funding and need to make up this deficit.
"Just £15 would pay towards a young person's first engagement in a mentoring arrangement, meeting their volunteer and learning valuable skills that change the direction their life was going in. ”
We match our volunteers with a disadvantaged young people either in the community or in school on a 6-month arrangement. These young people have been referred to us via social services, school, or carers for a number of reasons such as lack of confidence, bullying or difficulties at home. Once a week in their session our volunteers offer motivation, guidance, and encouragement to reach an agreed set of goals such as improving school attendance or improving relationships at home.
