Welcome to The Island – Mentoring children and young people in York

The Island is a registered charity, which provides a mentoring service to young people aged 8-13, and to disabled young people aged 14 to 19 in York. These young people are linked with fully-trained volunteer mentors, who, by means of weekly activity sessions, offer them, consistent one to one support over a period of 12 months. Mentoring sessions form the crux of The Island’s provision, and the funds we raise enable us to give mentors and mentees a shared weekly budget of £10 (plus reimbursement for travel expenses) to spend on positive activities within their communities.
