Would you like to make a difference to a child in need? Join us to provide weekly listening support to children and young people facing difficulties in their lives.

by Mentor Link

Mentor Link professionally and safely recruits volunteer mentors to offer support to children and young people in need across the West Midlands. Mentoring takes place either in school or a community setting and provides long-term, one-to-one confidential listening support for an hour each week based on the needs of the children. Each mentee is carefully matched to a mentor and profiled at the start of mentoring where goals and objective are set, and we let their needs guide the sessions. Difficulties faced may include anxiety, abuse, self-harm, and low-level mental health issues; being a Looked After child with attachment issues; and family difficulties including abuse, addiction, domestic abuse, and family breakdown or deprivation. The aim of mentoring is to help these children achieve positive changes both personally and educationally, and remain engaged with their education, families, and community. In the short term this sees an improvement in self-esteem and may mean engaging better in class and improving educational outcomes, and in the long term improving their life chances and enabling them to maintain positive relationships, thereby achieving a more successful transition to adulthood.
