  • About the Volunteer Role
    Volunteer Mentors are required to provide a flexible, practical and informal one to one support for young people who are experiencing an unsettled period in their life. Mentors get to know the young person, act as a positive role model and support them with the difficulties they may be facing. We are still actively recruiting for Volunteer Mentors during the covid-19 restrictions. Recruitment and training is happening We are continuing to recruit to Recruitment and meetings are currently being carried out by video link (Zoom) online to keep everyone safe. Volunteers are helping to support young people by phone and video calls. We are particularly encouraging applications from male volunteers, as these are under-represented in our service. Many of the young people we support require a positive male role model. If you are able to get on well with young people and are a good listener, we can teach you the rest! The role is supported by funding from the National Lottery. We are ideally looking for people who can offer 1.5 hours per week for up to 12 months.
