The Mentor Ring’s Projects
Mentor Matters – Mentoring Projects
Mentor Matters project aims to build a pool of mentors and role models from the local community to inspire and motivate people and to offer personal one-to-one support to those most in need. The goal is to encourage individuals to improve themselves and to support them through adversities they may face for example, health, education, bereavement, family breakdown and career development.
BecoME Involved – Volunteering Project
We are committed to providing volunteering opportunities for BME community members within The Mentor Ring’s programmes of activity as well as partner organisations and local community groups. The project’s primary aim is increasing BME participation in volunteering opportunities, offer training to volunteers to enable service delivery and to support the primary goals of the volunteer.
Children and Young People’s Project
We work with children of school age (5+) who are experiencing mental or emotional health, behavioural or psychological problems, which is impacting on their education and home life. All of these children come from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Some of the children have additional complex needs, such as disabilities or other debilitating health conditions.
