You’ve got the skills to be a great mentor or support volunteer: it’s about listening, asking questions and offering your time. A little bit of guidance can go a long way for those that need it. And it’s so rewarding to see young people and families make positive changes and know you’ve helped.
So what’s what?
Both roles are organised by Northorpe Hall Child and Family Trust, based in Mirfield. But both roles can be carried out in the community, eg meeting up with the person or family you are supporting at a cafe or community centre (or their home).
You’ll need to be over 18 and able to commit regular time for at least one year.
You will be supported and guided at all stages.

Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust supports over three thousand local children every year, providing telephone support to families and professionals, counselling, mental health support, mentors and confidence building group activities to help children grow strong and well. Young people rate our services 9 out of 10, and they tell us that we have really made a difference to their lives.
