This year we are delivering mentoring in schools as part of the Inspiring Futures project, funded by Children in Need and The Youth Futures Foundation. The project aims to improve the employment prospects for year 9 students (13-14 year olds) at two Norwich schools in 2021 and 2022. You can find out more here.
Community Mentoring Project ends
We have loved running our community mentoring project over the last few years, but now, as the funding has come to an end, we have the made the decision to bring this project to a close. We are no longer taking referrals but we will of course continue to support all the mentors and mentees who we matched as part of this project, until their mentoring relationships end.
This project has had a huge impact on both the people referred as mentees, and those who have volunteered as mentors. You can read the end of project report here.
We also continue to run our mentoring project at HMP Warren Hill in Suffolk, The Vestey Project, for the third year running. The aim of the project is a reduction of reoffending rates for former residents at the prison. You can read more about this here.
