How to Help

Become a volunteer carer or mentor

Any adult can apply to become a carer with us. Our children come from struggling families who often lack a strong support network. We match all referred children with a carer or mentor for regular visits or catch ups, to give them the opportunity to share new experiences with an extra role model who can provide a nurturing and stable relationship over time. For further details, see our Become a Carer or Mentor page.
