Since our start in 2011, we have taken 95 young people through intensive mentoring, averaging 5 months per programme. Our service has been presented to the Prime Minister and one of our mentees was presented to the Queen to recognise his positive change since we started supporting him.
The amount of time we spend with each young person helps us identify the causes of major problems and behavioural responses, and to address them with parents, schools, peers and other agencies. For those caught up in crime, we help them discover positive alternatives to wrong practices. For those struggling in education, we help identify causes of difficulties and work with teaching staff to build long-term stability in behaviour and attendance. And alongside that, we always work closely with families, giving them support, encouragement and coaching boundaries, where necessary. Practically speaking, our days can involve attending court meetings, meeting teachers, setting up training and employment appointments, and chatting time and again over milkshakes and air hockey tables. Through these, we build trust, respect, opportunities and hope for the future.
