Mentoring

Mentoring is a way of helping and supporting people in achieving their goals. Sacro mentoring services provide people with a mentor who will provide support on a one-to-one basis with many of the issues they might face in the community. Mentoring provides support on a one-to-one basis and is very much focussed on individual needs. It is also, importantly, voluntary on the part of the participant.
