Could you be a role model for an Islington child who would really benefit from your time?

Chance UK, a children’s charity based in the borough, is looking for more volunteer mentors for its well evidenced early intervention mentoring programme that improves children’s behaviour.

As a Chance UK mentor, you are matched with a child aged between 5 to 11 years old, and meet them once every week for 2-4 hours for one whole year. Together you work positively on behavioural and other goals whilst doing engaging activities that boost the child’s confidence and self-esteem.

All mentors receive full training, are carefully screened, and have a defined and goal-orientated  programme to follow. Budgeted expenses are reimbursed. Mentors are also managed and supported by a dedicated Programme Manager throughout their year of volunteering.

“Volunteer mentors are at the heart of what we do. If you are interested in making a meaningful difference to a child in Islington, we would love to hear from you” said Sophie Hay, Volunteer Recruitment Officer.

If you think you could help, call Sophie on 020 7281 5858 ext. 211 or email
