Sova CFO3 Mentoring North East

 

At Sova CFO3 Mentoring North East Project we find, train and support volunteer mentors in Tees Valley, Tyne and Wear and Co. Durham, to help offenders move towards social inclusion and mainstream provision by addressing their multiple barriers.

Many of our participants lack confidence, have low self-esteem, lead chaotic lifestyles and have little support from family and friends. Working alongside APM staff, our mentors are there to motivate, encourage and support offenders living in the community to get the skills, qualifications and confidence they will need to address their barriers and reintegrate into the community. This could be by offering advice on putting together a CV, helping to find the right training or college course, taking people to appointments and interviews or simply being there for reassurance and as a trusted person to talk to.

Sova CFO3 Mentoring North East Project is funded by a Co-financing Organisation of the European Social Fund and HM Prison & Probation Service via APM.

This project holds Mentoring and Befriending Foundation Approved Provider Status.
