From March 2022, we are pleased to be working alongside 6 other organisations as part of the GMP (Gloucestershire Mentoring Programme). This programme is aimed at assisting girls and young women, aged 11-18, who are currently facing challenges in their lives, requiring support and encouragement to help set achievable goals as well as raising awareness of their mental and emotional well-being. Support is offered through trained volunteers who provide one to one mentoring.
Transition to secondary school can be a particularly stressful time for many children when they may benefit from a little extra support. For those in the care system, leaving care at the age of 18 is also a very disorienting time, learning to live independently, managing finances and having to make big decisions. Therefore, our particular mentoring support is primarily targeted at girls aged 10, to help prepare them for the move up to secondary school and for those aged 19 who have just left the care system.
