Family Support

Our primary goal is to build resilience into young people and provide opportunities and experiences for them - so that they may reach their potential.

We do this by providing a free mentoring programme for at risk and disadvantaged young people by recruiting volunteers from the community.Each mentor is matched with a young person and they will spend an hour a week together for a minimum of one year. Together they will engage in a variety of activities together from baking to cycling, from craft projects to building model planes, meanwhile building a positive relationship that builds the young person confidence.

Our staff provide the necessary accountability and support for the special people who offer their time to build up and support a young person.

Organisation details

Quality training, support and supervision is one of the most vital components in assuring the success and longevity of a mentoring match. The goal of Big Brothers Big Sisters is that the Mentors are equipped with adequate tools to assure they are able to go the distance with their young person and feel competent in facing issues that may arise in the course of their mentoring relationship.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters team are dedicated to providing ongoing high quality training for its Mentors. This donation would enable us to continue to develop our training material, offer new training opportunities and topics and ultimately allow us to be able to provide quality Mentors to the vulnerable young people referred to our programme.
