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.


Location: across Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham and Croydon. We will only consider applications from individuals living in, or close, to these boroughs.

When: about two hours per week. Mentoring can take place late afternoon/evening and at the weekend for flexibility around full time education and work.

Commitment: nine months

Age requirement: 19 to 25

Role description: please download the CAMHS Mentor applicant pack for full information about the role, expectations and process.

To apply: after you have read the applicant pack, please complete the application form.
