National Recognition for our XL-Mentoring Project

Our Mentoring team have received Approved Provider Status for XL-Mentoring!

It means we have been accredited and have a stamp of approval from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO). Not only does it give validation and confirmation that what we are doing is of a very high and professional standard, but also attests to the hard work of the Mentoring team.

In the NCVO’s report our mentoring didn’t come out with a single area for development, whilst it highlighted the following strengths:

  • Safeguarding
  • Home visits
  • Resources provided
  • Training given
  • Support for volunteers and the team
  • Matching process and effectiveness

We are extremely proud of the recognition of their work because of the impact it has on young people like Derek.

If you want to join our mentoring team, let us know and we’ll send you more information about becoming a mentor.
