A bespoke mentoring programme, like our other mentoring streams, is based on relational therapy working with young people where they are, and offering high support. Often children accessing a bespoke programme are still exploring their own identity and trying to recognise their natural traits and characteristics; the mentoring aims to support them in identifying their own identity including realising their own  hopes, dreams, and goals. In the programme we aim to build confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, better quality communication and friendships; with a view to developing self-awareness and more control over emotions.

JAC bespoke mentoring can include a mix of the mentoring streams that are commonly available but is often done with one of our specialist mentors who are experts in carpentry and mechanics. The specialist mentors work with young people with a real passion for learning practical skills and the ability to focus on that with their mentor. Sessions can be adapted to the physical requirements of each young person. 

Young people are referred to this programme from Social Services, Schools, Local Education Authorities, Pupil Referral Units, Youth Services and Parents. We can work with young people in small groups, if appropriate, but most of our work is 1-1.


Prices can vary according to the needs of the young person or mentor to young person ratio. Most sessions for Art mentoring are priced at £585 per term (these are based on 90 minute sessions as our art-based mentoring needs a little longer to complete a task within the session).
