SMN: A warm welcome to our newest members

In the past month we have welcomed three new projects to our membership: Children 1st intandem mentoring; CVS Falkirk and Circle Inter School Social Education Project.  We encourage anyone interested in these projects to utilise our ‘Mentoring Map’ to find out a bit more about these member projects; the details of the lead contact for any mentoring activities within a project is shown on each profile.

Here is some more information on our newest members:

  • Children 1st intandem mentoring: Children 1st is delivering the intandem mentoring programme for young people aged 8-14 years who are looked after at home in Argyll and Bute.  Children 1st plan to recruit, train and support adult volunteers to help looked after children face challenges in their lives with confidence.  Volunteer mentors will meet with their mentee on a weekly basis for a minimum of one year.
  • CVS Falkirk: CVS Falkirk and District is recognised by Falkirk Community Planning Partnership and the local third sector as the Third Sector Interface for Falkirk.  The main purpose of the organisation is to promote any charitable purposes and an opportunity to develop a mentoring programme has recently been identified.
  • Circle Inter School Social Education Project: Circle works at the heart of deprived communities across Central Scotland to support the most disadvantaged and difficult to engage children and families to improve their lives.  Circle's mentoring project is based in West Pilton, North Edinburgh and involves local primary aged children receiving one-to-one academic and emotional support from volunteer mentors who are in their final year at George Heriot's secondary school.
