Shaathi Mentoring Programme is a project of the Osmani Trust. The Trust is a youth and community organisation that offers a wide range of community, health and sports initiatives tailored to the needs of the community. It aims to provide a holistic service, which helps people particularly those living in disadvantaged urban communities to re-engage with mainstream society and improve their quality of life. The Mentoring Project implements an early intervention approach in working with disadvantaged and deprived members of the BAME (Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic) communities. Many of our clients are identified as being at risk of becoming excluded from mainstream services such as education, training and employment or are engaged in anti-social behaviour or known to the criminal justice system.
The project seeks to enable and support clients to overcome different challenges and barriers in their day to day lives. Mentors are matched to clients who need and want a caring and responsible adult who will steer and guide them. As a mentor you will be expected to provide one-to-one support and guidance to young people and their families. This will be in the form of weekly face to face sessions, monthly group sessions and developing action plans for the young person or family you will be supporting.
If you’re outgoing and you feel you have what it takes to work with vulnerable, needy and challenging families we look forward to hearing from you.
Successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
