Move On Mentoring (Move On)

7 Bakehouse Close
Stephen Wilson
We match volunteer mentors to vulnerable young people to support them to achieve goals and reach their full potential.

Mentors and young people meet once a week, in the community for an hour or two, to work together as a pair towards a goal of the young person’s choice. Young people often choose recreation or leisure goals, such as learning to play guitar, boxing lessons or taking a cookery class, but the this is totally up to the young person themselves.
