The Nelson Trust is excited to be one of seven trusted organisations collaborating to offer the Gloucestershire Mentoring Programme, a new early intervention support service. This Programme is for girls and young women in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire – specifically, those at risk of becoming linked to criminal activity, either directly or indirectly, though they might not realise it; and those already in this position.
The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.
The programme is launching on the 2nd March 2022 and will be providing free trauma-informed, person-centred mentoring opportunities for young people. Individually, they will have a chance to form a long-lasting relationship with a trained volunteer mentor (trusted adult) – someone who will meet with them regularly in a safe space and be with them as they face life’s hurdles. This will help them build resilience and grow in confidence, and equip them with tools to make good choices, all leading to a more positive future.
