Mentoring for Education

A powerful tool for supporting hard-to-reach young people.

‘’To help pupils reach their educational potential, we must focus on improving their emotional wellbeing and ensure they are in the right frame of mind to learn”

Dave Gregory


By modelling a healthy, trusting and supportive relationship within the educational setting; mentoring creates a safe space in which young people with a range of social and emotional challenges can grow.

It helps them to develop an awareness of identity, builds their resilience, fosters self-respect, and promotes a sense of empowerment

With the 1:1 Challenging Me Mentoring programme, we aim to give young people all the tools they need to go on to live authentic, happy and fulfilling lives, believing that what they do and feel matters, and understanding that they have ownership over their own futures.

Summer Mentoring Programme

Our Summer Mentoring Programme provides support throughout the school holidays whilst offering a fun, safe and structured environment that promotes the wellbeing and resilience of hard-to-reach young people.
