Young People's Mentoring Service - Derby

Mentoring is one-to-one support. It means children and young people spend time with a positive adult mentor. The mentor will offer a range of support with things like improving self-confidence, behavior and developing positive relationships.

Mentoring also means children and young people widen their experiences with positive group activities.

What can we offer?

  • We help young people meet their mentors
  • We support the creation of a positive relationship between the mentors and the young person
  • We ensure mentors are appropriately matched to families in order to meet their individual needs.
  • We ensure young people are making positive use of their local resources and activities, such as parks and leisure centres.
  • We encourage and motivate the young person to make positive choices and encourage their personal development.
  • We fully include the voice of children, young people, and their families in decisions relating to the services being provided.
