Offers a variety of mentoring programme for children, young people and parents including:

Broadening Horizons - for young people aged 10 – 25. This programme is goal-focused and based in positive psychology, designed to encourage you to develop a growth mindset, enabling you to manage the challenges you face.

Mentoring for Mums - open to anyone who identifies as a woman or non-binary person with children aged 5+. We welcome women who are gay, straight, lesbian, queer, bi-sexual, trans, single or in a relationship, and offer one-to-one support on a weekly basis, over 12 to 24 weeks.

Women’s Support Groups - Our women’s groups are open to anyone who identifies as a woman or non-binary person, from all countries and ethnicities, whether you’re in a relationship or not. It’s a great place to access help and information about what’s going on, while having a cup of coffee or a snack. Mums are welcome to bring children to the groups and we have toys and games for them to play with. Our Women’s Support Groups are safe spaces where women can come and make friends and build supportive networks.
