One to One Mentoring

Tailored Support

Our 1:1 mentoring sessions are typically held weekly for 1/2 - 1

hour at a time, over a 6 week period. We work with each young person to address any issues or concerns throughout the programme, individually tailoring sessions based on their specific needs. These are ascertained through conversations with the school, parent/guardian and the young person, including mild to high level emotional or behavioural difficulties, persistent non-school attendance, family problems or temporary exclusions.


Further examples of specific focuses of programmes may include:

- Acting as an early intervention strategy to support vulnerable young people at risk of or involved in crime and/or anti-social behaviour.

- Building a young person’s confidence and self-esteem to empower them to protect themselves from sexual exploitation. 


We currently have FREE Virtual Mentoring sessions available for Young People Aged 11-18. 

Please scroll down to download and fill out the 'Young Person's Self-Referral Form' below if you are interested and would like to sign up. Alternatively if you are a parent/carer or professional and would like to refer a young person, you can also complete the relevant referral forms provided below. 


If you are interested in signing up, would like to make a referral or have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with our Senior Youth Worker - Justina via E-mail: justina@didcottrain.org.uk or Facebook: Justina Train


As with all of our other sessions, everything you tell us is kept between us confidentially unless we have any worries that you may be at risk of harm or that a crime has been committed. We would let you know if we needed to share any information to make sure you're safe wherever possible. 


Please be aware that TRAIN reserves the right to have the final say on the suitability of a young person for mentoring.
