Careers at The Kids Network

We exist because 50% mental health issues can be diagnosed before the age of 14. Way too early there is exam pressure, social media addiction, bullying, and gang grooming.

Children are stressed, depressed, anxious and angry and it affects the disadvantaged disproportionally.

Modern living can also be challenging for professionals. In fact young adults are the most impacted by loneliness, even more so than older groups.

The Kids Network supports children at a crucial time in their lives, in the lead up to and often during the transition from primary into secondary school. We do this by providing them with a volunteer mentor, a young professional from the local community.

Our model focuses on the individual needs of the child, building confidence and resilience and developing the tools to manage feelings for a positive future.

London is bursting with young professionals, millennials who want to give back in a meaningful way. We make this possible through mentoring.
