Event description

Description

Come along to Break's meeting space at Diamond House on Vulcan Road and have a chart with our mentoring team.

Mentoring a young person in Norfolk could be one of the most rewarding things you ever choose to do. You could help us to change young lives.

Break is looking for committed people who have a few
hours to spare every couple of weeks to support the
charity’s young service users.

This includes young people in care; young people leaving care;
young people with disabilities; young carers; young people in
foster placements; and young parents in need of support.

Is this you?
• able to relate to young people
• a good listener
• friendly and patient
• you have a good sense of humour

Find out more, email
mentoring@break-charity.org or call Clare Oakley, Senior Mentoring Co-ordinator on 07771 808 619.

What do Break mentors do?
Our mentors give their time to develop a relationship
with a vulnerable young person to give them support and
encouragement.

Each young person’s needs are different, so the type of
contact a mentor has with a young person will vary, but may
include casual activities such as going out for lunch or walks;
helping young people access local community activities; or
providing support with finding employment or educational
opportunities.

Any volunteer must understand that mentoring for Break is a
long-term commitment, due to the impact any changes could
have on the young person, their carers and families.
The Mentoring and Befriending Foundation states that
Mentoring makes a real difference to people who find that
they need the dedicated support of another person, often at
a time of transition or change.

A supportive relationship with a mentor – who is not family
or a close friend – can encourage a young person to make
positive changes in their life.

Mentors are carefully recruited, going through a formal
application process, training programme and interviews.
We also take up references and an Enhanced Criminal
Records check. Please see the back page for contact details.
Ongoing training and regular supervision is provided and
Break pays expenses and mileage to mentors.
