For Children

Mentor Link Supports You – Listens to You – Encourages You

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring provides children with an independent adult who listens and supports them with any difficulties they may be facing.

The mentor supports you by coming into school each week and taking you out of the classroom environment into a quiet area to  provide you with listening and therapeutic support in a one to one session. Our volunteer mentors are independent adults who provide, encouragement, information and friendship. All of the sessions are confidential except if there are Safeguarding concerns.

  • Helps you organise your time
  • Shares experiences of life
  • Helps you with your studies

What Mentees have told us:

“It’s a relief to always have the option to speak to my mentor, it gives me peace of mind for when stuff may get difficult in which a calm, level headed unbiased response will help me calm down and not overthink if times do get tough.”

“It gives me a chance to be myself and be away from my classmates. I have learned about respect, listening, concentration and focus, team work, patience, standing still and being calm. I have learned that improvement comes with practice, that I can have an ability to bounce back and not be scared of things that aren’t real.
I know my mentor is there for me to share my feelings.
