Friendship Works is Family Action’s flagship mentoring service. We improve the life chances of children and young people facing multiple disadvantages by matching them with a safe, reliable adult volunteer mentor on a long-term basis.
We have pioneered long-term mentoring for vulnerable children in London and believe that every child deserves a supportive childhood and the opportunity to fulfil their potential. We want to embed mentoring at the heart of communities and provide direct support to children who don't have enough of it in their lives. We want to give vulnerable children better life chances and ultimately help them re-write the story of their lives.
We work with families in London. The children we help are between 5-18 years of age. They all face multiple disadvantages and need the long-term support of a safe, reliable adult.
