CAMHS Mentoring Project

The CAMHS Mentoring Project matches volunteers on a one-to-one basis with current Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) users. The pair meet regularly to access community activities together and build a relationship. Volunteer mentors are someone the service user can have fun with, try new things with, and talk to for informal pastoral support.

Currently only accepting applications from potential volunteers who identify as male.
