Delivering inspirational mentoring for Somerset’s most vulnerable, disaffected and disadvantaged young people
PROMISEworks is a local charity making a big difference in Somerset by offering mentoring services to disadvantaged children across the county.

Long-term mentoring makes a real difference to disadvantaged young people
Mentoring can improve self-esteem, widen horizons and raise aspirations.

It can help young people learn to control their anger; prevent them getting into dangerous situations and stop them from causing harm or damage to themselves or people and things around them.

If only for a short time each week, it can give them the opportunity just to be children - to enjoy a picnic, jump in the surf or critique the current fashion trends without worrying about what else is going on in often chaotic young lives
