intandem is Scotland’s national mentoring programme for young people looked after at home. Funded by Scottish Government and delivered by Inspiring Scotland, intandem will provide mentors for young people aged between 8-14 years who are looked after by their local authority but living at home.
With the help of partner charities, intandem will match young people with trained volunteers to build a positive, trusting, supportive and secure relationship. To be most effective, mentoring relationships should be long term, frequent and regular.
Partner charities will receive on-going support from intandem and Inspiring Scotland across a range of issues including volunteer recruitment and training, as well as capacity building. They will also have the opportunity to take part in co-designing approaches to evaluation, and will be expected to take part in agreed evaluation and reporting processes, overseen by Inspiring Scotland.
