This is one of our most persistent services; wise and caring mentors from The King’s Arms have supported hundreds of local young people for many years. A mentor commits their self to listen to the young person, without casting judgement or criticism. We passionately believe that every young person has the potential for successful, healthy development and that they possess the capacity for positive development. Mentoring therefore provides a space for the young person to make better sense of their situation and explore ways to overcome challenges to become the very best they can be. For many, mentoring is a short term relationship but can continue if there is a need. Some young people meet with their mentor in school, while others meet in other safe spaces, including at The King’s Arms youth centre. Any young person between the age of 11 and 18 and living in our area is eligible to be referred. Referrals can be made by a parent, a professional or by the young person themselves. Referrals are then considered for mentoring.

The ReMind programme grew out of an identified need for early intervention in supporting young people who struggle with heightened anxiety. It aims to equip young people who exhibit early signs of anxiety with a range of tools to better enable them to cope with the stresses of everyday life, thus averting the development of potentially more harmful anxiety issues.

While being fun and enjoyable, ReMind is firmly grounded on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). It can be run over five half day sessions, or ten 1.5 hour sessions, where six to eight young people are helped to understand the link between their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Designed especially for students who are struggling at school, the creative S~TEEM course is designed to boost the young people’s confidence and self-esteem. This fun and interactive programme for groups of between 6 and 8 young people can be delivered over between five and ten weekly half-day sessions. Young people develop a better understanding and experience of healthy self-esteem through learning to recognise false, negative thoughts and identifying their unique positive qualities. While developing their team-work skills, many young people find new friends on the S~TEEM programme.
