We have been awarded funding from the Community Safety Partnership to offer a mentoring programme for young people aged 11-16, for a weekly hour-long session for 6 weeks. The mentoring programme is intended to be an early intervention programme where TRAIN works on a one to one basis with a young person to address an issue or issues. This is an individually tailored programme based on their needs. These will be ascertained through conversations with the school, parents and young person. For example, the programme could build a young person’s confidence and self-esteem to empower them to protect themselves from sexual exploitation.
