The Mentor Ring’s mission is to provide mentoring support and guidance to people of all ages and backgrounds, helping them to overcome significant barriers to social inclusion. We help individuals and communities to tackle their personal challenges – whether it is in health & wellbeing, education, training, employment or settling in the UK.
We provide specialist mentoring support with parenting, bereavement, relationships, drugs and alcohol misuse, youth offending, mental health, cultural differences and school truancy.
We also organise and coordinate a wide range of physical activities, craft and art workshops, personal development and training courses, primarily for the purpose of social cohesion.
Our mission is to offer advice, guidance and support to socially and economically disadvantaged people through individual and group mentoring. We aim to provide a service that caters for the whole person by raising standards, confidence and self-esteem – thus creating opportunities and choices that will help individuals and their communities to realise their full potential.
This is achieved by understanding the individual’s specific needs and aspirations and agreeing goals and milestones with them that can be monitored and measured. This approach allows individuals and those who feel socially excluded in particular to take a more positive and participative role within their communities and successfully integrate into wider society.
