MAPS is an award-winning, early-intervention project providing mentoring and advocacy support to vulnerable children and young people in Sutton, Croydon, Merton and Kingston.

Our trained volunteers work with young people who are facing a range of difficulties, whether with low self-esteem or poor mental health, or with challenging family situations. We provide them with a safe space to unpack life and have their voice heard.


What we do

Mentoring – where a volunteer mentor builds a positive relationship with a mentee 

Advocacy – where a volunteer advocate helps a young person have their opinions and views heard

Peer mentoring – where a volunteer mentor helps one of their peers having been through a similar experience
