Step-Out Mentoring is an early intervention mentoring organisation that provides support for children and young people in the heart of Southwark through outdoor based 1:1 mentoring and group workshops. We work with children and young people aged 8-18 who are disengaged with education and/or life.

Our vision is to see children and young people supported through tough times and empowered with the skills and emotional resilience to thrive in life and play positive roles in their communities. Supporting children and young people who have been struggling with mental health issues in the shadow of Covid-19. These young people will have been struggling with complex issues exacerbated by the pandemic, and so a safe outdoor based program opens up opportunity to re-build resilience and confidence, as well as helping them to re-engage with their families, schools and wider communities. We work to support them in forging a way through life, encouraging them to thrive and become positive change makers in their communities.

Step Out Mentoring provides mentors from within the local community to young people aged 8-18. Step Out trains and recruits local volunteers and then matches them to young people who are referred to our service through GP's, Social services, Schools and health centres. The volunteer mentors meet the young people once a week for outdoor based sessions. The sessions last for 12 months and provide an opportunity to walk alongside young people and create spaces where they can talk about their challenges and process what they are going through. Whilst enjoying fun engaging sessions such as cycling, boxing, swimming, art or just going for a walk.

We are raising funds to continue the support we provide for young people.

£10 will pay for one weeks worth of mentoring activities for a young person.

£40 will pay for a young person to enjoy a months worth of mentoring activities.

£100 will contribute towards recruiting and training up local volunteers to be youth mentors.

£1000 will contribute towards our trips and residentials for the year

£5000 will pay for transformative mentoring for one young person for a whole year.

Step-Out Mentoring operates under The Wells Trust (charity no.1103436).

Thank you so much for supporting these young people. If you would like to find out more please visit our website at
