GreenHouse Mentoring offers trained volunteer mentors for one-to-one. Mentors have all received acceptable enhanced DBS disclosures, two references and attended our training programme. All mentors are supported by a GHM staff member.
GreenHouse Mentors will meet for one year with a young person for about an hour each week during term time. Our mentoring takes place at our centre in Stopsley, where we provide a relaxed café style atmosphere for them to grab something to eat or drink and find a space where they can spend time together doing something they both enjoy or just catching up.
