Focusing on Health

Westminster Befriend a Family

Westminster Befriend a Family has been around for more than 3 0 years, supporting children, young people and families in Westminster and surrounding boroughs. We currently run two mentoring programmes - Mentoring for Mums and Broadening Horizons - mentoring for young people.

Mum’s Mentors provide support to mum of children aged 5 and up, as part of our Mentoring for Mums (M4M) Programme. It’s a great programme for women who are looking to make a positive change in their lives. With the support of a trained, supervised female volunteer, M4M empowers participants identify the changes they want to make, and builds confidence to take the steps to get there. Over 12 to 24 weeks, our mentors offer one to one support on a weekly basis to support mums to get unstuck and get where they want to be. Mentors offer coaching-style support, connecting women to the services and support they need through signposting, referral, and accompaniment.

Young People’s Mentors support young people aged 10 -25, as part of our Broadening Horizons Programme. It’s goal-focused and based in positive psychology, designed to encourage participants to develop a growth mindset, enabling them to independently manage the challenges they face. Young people are matched with trained, supervised mentor who meets with them on a weekly basis for 12 – 24 sessions, each lasting about an hour, providing social, emotional, and practical support. With a strong signposting and referral function, by the end of the programme we aim to connect young people to one more group or service that will meet their needs and enable them to achieve their ambitions.

Roles:

Mentor for Mums

Young Person's Mentor

Community Southwark & Healthwatch Southwark

We are the umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in Southwark.

We empower local people and voluntary organisations, with the tools they need, to work together in creating a borough that works for everyone. We support charities, community groups and individuals through capacity building, volunteering and social action.

We strive for a Southwark in which all communities and individuals can fulfill and exceed their potential.

Healthwatch Southwark was established in April 2013 as the new health and social care consumer champion in the borough representing residents, service users, carers and organisations within Southwark.

We listen to the needs and experiences of Southwark residents on health and social care services and use those experiences to influence the professionals who plan, buy and deliver services so that they can be improved.
