Nottingham Community Mentoring project 11 Nov 2009
This Nottingham project is the development of a pilot project held in London. The project will recruit adult volunteers from the community, train them as mentors and match them with vulnerable young people aged 11 to 14 who would benefit from one to one support. Beneficiaries may be at risk of truancy, or be victims of crime and bullying, young offenders, young people with difficult home lives and those experiencing difficulty with periods of transition, such as from primary to secondary school.
This project will work across Leeds, primarily with refugees and asylum seekers, supporting them to face and overcome problems such as immigration status, poverty, language barriers and lack of knowledge of the British way of life. The beneficiaries will have a multitude of special needs, their lives having been characterised by turbulence,emotional trauma and family loss. The project will provide information, advice and support on a one-to-one basis to children in vulnerable families, according to need.
This project aims to engage and motivate families with children up to five years old in two of the most deprived wards in the area. These families are reluctant to access statutory and other support services for their children and themselves, which is having a detrimental effect on their child's development and quality of life and is pushing them into social isolation. The project will offer support options in various local, accessible locations and timings will be arranged to suit the families involved.
