Safe Space, Mentoring programme
Mentoring is available to 11-19 year olds (up to 25 years for young people with learning difficulties/disabilities) across Hertfordshire. (For those aged 11 they must currently be in secondary school). It involves the young person meeting with a volunteer mentor for an hour a week, in a public place such as café or library, to give them the opportunity to talk about anything they wish to discuss or want advice on. Typically a mentoring relationship lasts for 3-6 months. A professional would need to make a referral to Mentoring, this could be somebody at school or a worker involved in with the young person/family.
