JAF Mentors work with children and young people from the ages of 8 to 18, 21 with disabilities. Our holistic mentoring programmes are specifically tailored to meet the unique and individual needs of each child and young person referred to us.
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.
