have an exciting new Intergenerational Mentoring Peer Project about to start in High Wycombe and its surrounding areas.
The emotional well-being of children and young people is extremely important and sometimes all they need is someone they can connect with and help support them in various aspects of their lives.
With a combination of diversionary activities, holistic and practical support activities through the offering of 1:1 mentoring and group support to individuals, they in turn will build their confidence, sell-esteem, qualifications, life management skills and networks necessary to make lasting positive changes.
