Making a difference to children and young people in Sutton
MAPS Mentoring is an award-winning programme supporting children and young people to achieve their full potential through the support of a one-to-one volunteer adult role model.
In this section, you will find everything you need to know about MAPS Mentoring.
Are you a child, young person, parent or guardian of a young person who would like to get involved with MAPS Mentoring? Please give us your details here and a member of our friendly team will be in touch with you soon.
Our Mentors meet with their young person once a week for a year.
Mentoring can help young people connect with their community, improve confidence and raise aspirations enabling them to achieve their full potential.
It's a safe space for young people to explore the issues they face. They will receive support and guidance, learn new skills, try new activities and have some fun.
If you are a young person and would like to talk to someone today, please visit our support page here.
