Our mentoring programme brings caring adults together with young people in supportive trusting relationships.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission is: “To guide at risk young people by promoting growth and development through the use of adults as mentors”.
Big Brothers Big Sisters offers a consistent one to one adult relationship that is designed to assist children and young people to face their everyday challenges.
Research shows what a huge difference a Big Brother or Big Sister can make in a child’s life.
