* Merseyside Junior Mentoring
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.
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.
- 96% OF THE CHILDREN ACHIEVE THEIR SET GOALS
- 98% SHOW AN IMPROVEMENT WITH ISSUES THEY WERE REFERRED FOR
The benefit of the mentoring service affects the individual child, their family life, their school academic life, the relationships with their friends and the life of the volunteer mentor.
