Mentoring Project

This project that helps young people aged between 16 and 29 in South Lanarkshire to overcome the barriers and challenges they face and assists them to move on with their lives and improve their health and wellbeing.

Launched in April 2017 and funded through the Big Lottery and the Robertson Trust it pairs young people with volunteer mentors who meet with them regularly, build trust, offer support and guidance, and do their best to help with any issues that may be preventing them from fulfilling their ambitions.

The success of the project relies on the input of committed, enthusiastic and resilient mentors. Mentors are fully-trained and offered continual support from the project staff.

If you are from a professional background, have some free time, want to give something back to the community, and feel you have skills that would help make a positive impact on young people’s lives, then you may be what we’re looking for in a volunteer mentor. To discuss getting involved in the project, please call Ian McLaughlan on 01698 300390 or email ian.mclaughlan@vaslan.org.uk
