£80,000 funding support for young people in South Ayrshire
A new project which provides peer mentoring support for care experienced young people in South Ayrshire has been given the go-ahead thanks to a funding award of £80,000 to Barnardo’s Scotland.
Peer mentoring is a dynamic way of helping young people with experience of being in care by offering them the support and guidance of someone who has been there too. For many looked after young people, a consistent and safe relationship with someone who cares helps them to know that they matter. Mentoring is also an important foundation for building better relationships and improving confidence.
