What Mentees have told us:
“Mentoring has helped me sort myself out and boost my confidence and gives great advice to my problems. It has been a great help. I feel relaxed and safe. I felt there was always someone to help me through everything. We had a good relationship and thank you so much for everything.”
“My mentor has helped me with sorting issues and I liked having someone to talk to. I feel my mentor has helped me talk about what I was upset about and this helped me feel much better. It has made me feel happy and I have someone to talk to if I need it.”
