* Merseyside Junior Mentoring

Our vision

Junior Mentoring In Action

We work across Merseyside, focussing on children aged 5-11 years. They are experiencing difficulties which may be having a negative impact on their learning, confidence and social skills.

The programme provides a solution focused approach to support a child to develop their inner resources and strengths. Building their self-esteem, and finding positive alternatives to their challenging behaviour that could otherwise result in them not reaching their full potential.

Tailored Support

We provide a tailored one-to-one mentoring package with a carefully screened, trained and supervised adult volunteers from within the community.

Volunteers are trained in using a solution focused approach to working with children, they cover safeguarding children, lone working and solution focused approach to working with children, before they are matched to a child. Safeguarding is paramount throughout our work.
