Mentor Link provides one to one social and emotional support to vulnerable and distressed children and young people by providing them with a volunteer mentor or counsellor.
Formed in 2002, we now mentor around 450 young people each year across the West Midlands.
We are recruiting more volunteer Mentors, in particular, more male mentors to work with boys in the Telford area. The mentors will listen to, befriend and support children and young people with the aim of creating a more positive attitude towards themselves and their learning. The mentoring helps the young person build a positive future and their well-being forms the focus of our service.
