Become a volunteer mentor for adults and young people leaving prison
The Milestone Mentoring programme has been running for 12 years and in 2011 was awarded a prestigious Butler Trust Commendation. The programme is also recognized with the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation’s Approved Provider Standard. Young men referred to the project are matched with a trained volunteer mentor from their area prior to release from custody. The mentoring relationship starts in the prison and continues post-release for a period of at least six months. Support, advice and guidance are the key constituents of the project and the support offered is tailored to individual mentees’ needs.
