Why come to Havering
The Early Help Service is recruiting volunteers to the following programmes, which take place across Havering to support our work with children, young people and families:
Young People’s Mentor
Havering Young People’s Mentoring Service provides support, advice and guidance to young people aged 10-18, encouraging them to make positive choices and achieve their goals.
Mentors are matched with a young person and meet with them on a weekly basis, for a period of up to 12 months. During this time, a strong relationship is built through a variety of activities and trips, including a monthly group meeting with other volunteers and young people engaged in the Service.
The Independent Visitors programme will give every child and young person in care the offer of a regular befriender to provide consistent support, to listen to their thoughts and feelings, and to take part in a range of activities/trips together.
Independent Visitors are matched with a child or young person and meet with them every two-three weeks, for a period of up to 18 months.
