Physical Disability Mentoring Scheme
What does it do?
Mentors offer on a voluntary basis to give time and support to encourage another, this will typically be when someone is making a change in their lives. There are a range of services that the team can offer from advice and support to signposting to counselling and transport services.
Mentoring is for a fixed period of time and will begin with an initial visit to assess a mentee's needs. This will be done by the team coordinator.
The aim of the Mentorship scheme:
- To mentor someone through a period of change
- Enable self-assessment of needs
- Give advice and support
- Signpost to advocacy/counselling/transport services
