We specialise in mentoring children and young people who exhibit challenging behaviour. Amongst the most common causes are; a difficulty communicating and expressing frustrations, mental health, socioeconomic status and home environment. These behaviours commonly manifest themselves in the following ways; self-harming, self-injurious behaviour, sexual behaviour, aggressive/destructive behaviour and absconding. Understanding this enabled us to create our Early Intervention Mentoring and Crisis Intervention Mentoring, programmes.
