“Volunteering a small amount of time once a week has the potential to change someone’s life.”


Aspire Mentor – Join our established and successful Traffic Light Mentoring programme. Be trained and supported to mentor a young person aged 16-25 within the local community. We carefully match you to a young person in an ongoing and flexible mentoring opportunity.

Advance Mentor – Join our new programme, Starting Point Advance, mentoring those aged 11-19 who are at risk of exclusion and/or becoming NEET upon leaving education. It is most likely that mentoring will take place outside of a school or college environment, for example in local cafes, however on a case by case basis it may be that mentoring happens in school.
