For many of the individuals we work with either in custody or in the community, someone to support them change their lifestyle and stop reoffending is crucial. That someone could be you!

As a mentor you would be matched with an individual either in custody or in the community. This will be on a weekly or fortnightly basis dependant on their needs. In the community you could meet in coffee shops, libraries, cafés or any other public place that suits you and the mentee.

As a volunteer mentor you could be supporting the mentee with various support needs. For example, supporting benefit claims, support in gaining employment, substance misuse guidance and support, mental and physical wellbeing support and many other support needs.

For the mentee you could potentially be the only consistent person in their life and you will be the person they look up too. You are their role model to empower and enable them to steer clear of crime.

In return you will gain valuable experience, skills, knowledge as well as a sense of pride. You will also receive continuous training and continuous support from each and every co-ordinator on project
