Our portfolio of resources have been developed in order to help increase the skills and knowledge of those involved in mentoring and befriending. They will help you in setting up, commissioning or developing your mentoring or befriending service. All our publications and resources are continually being added to and are updated to ensure they’re relevant, up-to-date and incorporate new examples of good practice from across the sector, which reflect the good practice that we promote via the Approved Provider Standard (APS).

They cover many areas of planning, operation and management including: setting up a programme, training mentors and befrienders, safeguarding and risk management, measuring outcomes, as well as giving you research and impact reports to help you make the argument for funding your programme or expanding it.
