Statement from Andrea Maddocks MBE
Founder and CEO of Mentor Link

andrea

Since founding the charity in 2002 it has been a constant source of inspiration to me that so many people want to help young people and how they can make a positive difference to them. When I started mentoring young people in those early days, I realised that there was a need for this service and the resources to help more young people lay within the local community. As a mother of three I remain passionate about the service that the charity provides and dedicated to children and young people.
