intandem is Scotland's mentoring programme for young people that are looked after at home. The programme is funded by the Scottish Government and delivered nationally by Inspiring Scotland in partnership with 13 charities across the country.

intandem provides mentors for young people aged 8-14 who are looked after by their local authority but love at home.

intandem matches young people with trained volunteers and supports them to build a positive, trusting, supportive and secure relationship.

To be most effective, the mentoring relationships will be long term, frequent and regular.

intandem relies on volunteer mentors to provide a positive, trusted and fun role model for children and young people that will meet weekly with the young person for at least a year to listen and to encourage them to explore their local community through different activities.
