Hayle Youth Project; One-to-one mentoring and discussion groups

Hayle works across Cornwall to help young people "reach their full potential." They approached Church Urban Fund for help to expand their mentoring scheme that supports disadvantaged 'hard to reach' teens. Our investment allowed them to develop two new areas of work. Firstly, a pilot project in a school is helping young people transition from primary to secondary education. This change is understood to have a long term impact upon the success of their secondary education. One to one mentoring helps particularly vulnerable young people make this transition well. Secondly, Cornwall Council have asked them to run a peer led discussion group for children who have suffered from domestic abuse. This work both supports the young people and also helps to inform on council policy making.
