One-to-one mentoring

We mainly work with young people on a one-to-one basis.

Each young person builds a trusting relationship with a single consistent person; this relationship lasts as long as the young person needs; and the mentoring is taken up by the young person when they want it and are motivated to make changes in their lives.

Employing ex-offenders and Carney’s Community beneficiaries

Carney’s Community involves ex-offenders and previous beneficiaries in a number of ways.

Ex-offenders must have not reoffended for two years to be eligible for employment. Ex-service users must hold down a job with another employer for at least a year, to demonstrate they are capable of fulfilling the responsibilities of employment.

Eligible beneficiaries who have gone through the project are fully trained, risk assessed and supported to volunteer e.g. as peer mentors, volunteer coaches and to provide administrative support.

Yoga Sessions

Yoga sessions are held on Thursday evenings at 8.15 pm, every fortnight.

The sessions are delivered by Behaviour Specialist and Youth Worker Zara Pittman who, after trying a few boxing sessions, saw the similarities with Yoga and how much the two could compliment one another.
