Volunteers support young people to make better life choices – steering them away from crime and helping them realise their potential.
The project offers advice, motivation and emotional support to encourage young people to make positive differences to their lives and gain some stability. Each mentoring relationship is structured, purposeful and time limited. A standard relationship involves volunteers meeting with a young person on a fortnightly basis for three months with the option of a further extension.
