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.

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.
TMR supports vulnerable people via one-to-one or group mentoring whichever they feel comfortable, as well activities/workshops set up for the individuals which they feel they may benefit from. TMR currently runs coffee morning meet ups every Tuesday between 10.30-11.30am for individuals to talk about any issues they have amongst a group setting. They are able to engage in group discussion and share their own experiences and give their advice and how they are able to solve issues as a form of peer mentoring. Coffee morning provides a great way of Social networking and a way to build confidence amongst individuals of the group. Coffee mornings also provide Training and interactive workshops for them to develop skills and enjoy.
