Mentoring can be defined as a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person.


Mentoring is a voluntary role, but unlike a voluntary commitment to the work of a charity or organisation, mentoring is a commitment to an individual.


Whether you are older or younger, with people support experience or without, if you have some time to offer, the ability to listen, and can keep someone in mind when perhaps no one else is then you could make an excellent mentor.


Friends First work with disadvantaged, long-term unemployed, or homeless adults who are in need of a period of support.


Mentors must complete the Friends First mentor training programme and be DBS checked for working with vulnerable adults.


Mentors have access to ongoing support from Friends First throughout the duration of their mentoring role.
