We improve young people’s lives through mentoring – delivering Group and 1-2-1 mentoring programmes. Our youth workers are specifically trained to mentor young people aged 9 to 18, having completed a CPD course in Youth Mentoring Training with the Mentoring Lab. 

All young people we mentor are referred to us by schools, health services, other agencies, or parents/guardians and young people themselves. 

We are currently accepting referrals for our 1-2-1 mentoring programme. 

If you would like to make a referral, please complete a referral form and send it to georgina@didcottrain.org.uk

Please note that the waiting list for our 1-2-1 mentoring programme changes throughout the year. Generally, the waiting time is between six to twelve weeks. We make sure to tell you the current waiting time when you are referred.

Our mentoring is an early intervention and preventative support service that aims to improve the outcomes for young people. If needs exceed our capacity, we may recommend alternative provisions.

Group Mentoring Programme

We deliver group mentoring to young people aged 9 to 18 in schools across Didcot. Each group has a maximum of eight young people. The group meets once a week for 1 hour over six consecutive weeks. 

We offer three group mentoring packages, which focus on different topics in each session: 

  • Mental Health & Wellbeing 
  • Building Confidence & Self-Esteem 
  • Positive Relationships 

1-2-1 Mentoring Programme

We also deliver bespoke 1-2-1 mentoring to young people aged 11 to 18 who either live, or attend a school in Didcot. We meet with the young person once a week for 1 hour over a minimum of six weeks. Typically this is facilitated within the young person’s school, though if the need arises we’re more then happy to arrange sessions at our base. No matter what, our sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each young person. Presently, our mentors are women and are happy to mentor any young people.
