Mentoring can be a rewarding way to ‘give back’ and share your experiences with someone who could really benefit from hearing an informed, consistent and fresh perspective…possibly something they haven’t had before.

We’re delivering ‘Developing Futures’ a funded 12-week e-mentoring programme for young people aged between 18-24 years from ethnic minority backgrounds and facing mental health challenges, in the London Boroughs of Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow and Haringey.

We are now seeking new mentors for the programme! We would like individuals from a range of different backgrounds who have the capacity to give a few hours per month to support their mentees. As a mentor you’ll receive Mental Health Awareness, Safeguarding and Mentoring training via webinars ahead of full enrolment. The e-mentoring will happen via regular texts and calls using Brightside’s online youth mentoring platform.
