They offer one-to-one support for people in the home and are a positive role model to everyone. They help the client to help themselves by supporting them to achieve small steps that help them lead to long term change.
Being a volunteer Family Mentor takes approximately 2 hours each week; 1 hour with the client you have been matched with and an hour with your Link Worker. You must be able to commit to being part of the programme for a minimum of 12 months.
You will be supported and supervised by a Link Worker who is a member of our team responsible for the client you have been matched with. They are there to assist and safeguard you and to ensure you have all you need to fulfil your role.
As we continue with this work we greatly appreciate the prayer support we receive. It is really encouraging to know that people in our town have a heart for the people who make up our community. We would love for prayers to continue for:
The people we work with
The mentors who give up their time to help
The other organisations and agencies we work with
For more people to step forward and volunteer to be Mentors
