Mentoring gets Approved Provider Standard

20150222 WVYP Mentor APS  Bridget Winfield squareWe’re over the moon to have been awarded the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation‘s Approved Provider Standard.  We’re just one year into formally offering our mentoring programme and we’re so pleased to have had the quality and effectiveness of our mentoring confirmed by the national mentoring organisation.  A great achievement by the team and especially Bridget (pictured), our mentoring co-ordinator.

We have 14 mentors busy in the scheme at the moment, with 7 more about to be trained.  The demand is huge though and we’re looking for more people who are prepared to volunteer their time to make a difference to someone’s life.  We provide great training and support, so its a opportunity to develop new skills for the volunteers too. If you’re interested, please contact Bridget at mentoring@wvyp.org.uk.
