It delivers a year-long intensive programme of support for 250 disengaged and disadvantaged young people inside schools and colleges in its community. It has a proven track record of improving behaviour and relationships of young people at home and school and positively impacting interactions with the youth justice system. The Fore funded the development and launch of a new in-school mentoring programme called My Mentor enabling Mentoring Plus to scale its provision beyond the boundaries of its local authority area, for the first time in its 18-year history.
