Who are we?
Mentoring Plus supports young people in Bath & NE Somerset who are facing challenges in thier lives. For many young people, difficulties in school, at home or with peers are a daily reality. Children and teens struggling with anxiety, unmet needs or lack of family resources are missing out on education and opportunities.
We help 5-25 year olds feel connected through mentoring schemes, youth clubs and inspiring activities programmes in our community and at our youth hub.
Why are we crowdfunding?
We are fundraising so we are able to keep providing youth clubs and activity groups at our community hub for the children and young people of Bath & NE Somerset. We provide a safe, secure and welcoming space where a healthy freshly cooked meal is provided at every session. Trained youth leaders run every session, supporting the young people that attend and organising fun activities.
How we’ll spend the money raised
The cost of living crisis has had a huge impact on us as a charity. The cost of keeping the hub warm has nearly tripled since 2021 and providing a hot home cooked meal for the young people that attend our youth club is proving more and more difficult. We'd use the funds raised from this crowdfunder to pay to heat the space this winter and provide approx 1500 meals throughout the year to the children who attend the sessions.
