Mentoring Plus: changing the lives of vulnerable children and young people in Bath and NE Somerset

Mentoring Plus trains and supports adult volunteer mentors, matching them one to one with each young person. They work together through problems, build confidence and try new things.

With the help of their mentors, children and young people are able to cope better with school, family or behaviour, to connect with their community and choose a positive future. See what mentors mean to our young people and highlights of our 15 year celebration of mentoring in March 2014.

Could you help our work? We need volunteer mentors, with new training sessions every term. We also need vital funding to train and support our mentors, and to provide skills-building activities for children and young people.

We accept referrals (including self-referrals) throughout the year for children and young people who would benefit from mentoring: please see information for referrers.

We're delighted to announce our new enhanced mentoring service commissioned by B&NES for another 3 years, starting 1 July 2014. Out-of-school mentoring now includes young people aged 12-21, and we're introducing secure e-mentoring, focused Personal Plans and vocational activities for over-17s. Referrers, please see our new referral form with full criteria.

Due to continued heavy demand, places for young people in our summer cohort are now full. New referrals will now be looking ahead to autumn 2014 for mentor matching. We are always happy to talk about priority cases and alternative services - please give us a call on 01225 429694.

Our young people have been busy. Skills-building activities this term have included sports taster sessions courtesy of TeamBath, music recording with Kelvin Swaby and Daniel Hibbert, and farm activities at Jamie's Farm.
