Online Mentoring

Our online mentoring offer is aimed at 12-16 year olds who are at risk of becoming involved in anti-social behaviour and/or crime. Young people can access their online mentoring sessions via their preferred platform which includes XBOX, PlayStation 4 or a video call. All 1:1 sessions take place with our BFCCT Digital Youth Engagement Officer. 

Sports gaming such as FIFA and other sports based online activities will form part of 1:1 mentoring sessions. This approach will act as a hook to engage young people, allowing them to build confidence, talk about any issues or challenges they may face and provide a way to positively foster their interests and talents in a safe environment. By engaging in our Online Mentoring provision, it is hoped that young people will change their attitudes towards anti-social behaviour and go on to access positive provisions that will continue to improve their personal development.

Our Online Mentoring provision has been developed due to funding from the Youth Endowment Fund. The aims are to identify how young people who are at risk of offending can be supported via online/digital platforms and support.
