The aim is to reduce re-offending in young people by encouraging them to change their attitude, thinking and behaviour through mentoring, advice, advocacy and targeted specialist support.
They key element of the mentoring work is supporting the young person to understand and change their underlying attitudes, behaviours and aspirations, whilst also addressing their confidence, self-esteem and resilience. The person mentoring is part of a team facilitating this process; they do not have to do it all. Much of the work will involve linking and sign-posting with partner organisations.
The mentoring approach will be practical, holistic and will provide Tools4Life.
