Who are the children we help?
Our children are referred to us by social workers, community or government agencies or by their parents who may be a sole parent or a guardian. They may have no extended network of supportive family or friends and there may be challenging circumstances at home which impact on how much direct attention the child/ren can receive.
How we help them
Our unique mentoring relationships (known as ‘links’) offers each child time, attention, care, stability, guidance and exposure to new experiences and opportunities to empower them to reach their potential and establish their future.
Mentor aunties and uncles can be anyone over the age of 18 years and come from all walks of life. They undertake rigorous suitability assessments and training as the well-being of your children is our main priority.
The program benefits children by providing new and different experiences; someone else in their lives who makes them feel special and supports their interests. And an extended family including an ‘auntie’ or ‘uncle’ may include grandparents, cousins and more!
Parents/guardians benefit from having a caring person who can offer support to their child; a break from the stresses of parenting for a period of time each month; and another role model for their child.
