Youth charity seeks volunteers

Posted on December 23 2015 at 2:19:43

Children’s charity Mentor Link provides long-term one-to-one social and emotional support to vulnerable and distressed children.

The charity professionally recruits and trains volunteer mentors to listen to and support young people who may be facing difficulties such as illness, low self-esteem, bereavement, family breakdown, self-harm, relationships with others. Its aim is to create a more positive attitude towards themselves and learning.  The well-being of these young people forms the focus of the charity’s work.

With over 13 years’ experience of providing this service to schools and a good track record of success, the charity is recruiting more volunteer mentors.

No qualifications are necessary – you just need to be a good listener and role model with an interest in supporting young people.

Applicants are required to complete an Enhanced DBS clearance, be able to commit to a minimum of six months volunteering and spend half an hour each week with referred children. Training is provided free of charge and travelling expenses paid.

Mentor Link offers a prompt, professional, long-term and dedicated service to children and also welcomes enquiries from parents, schools, health professionals or community organisations.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer mentor, or would like to support the charity in raising awareness or organising fundraising events, contact Karen Arnold on 07875438659 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
