A CHARITY which supports distressed and vulnerable children and young people in Redditch and Bromsgrove has been given a funding boost by the Beoley-based Oakland Foundation.
The children’s charity has agreed to fund Mentor Link’s work with a local young person in one of the two towns for the coming year.
Mentor Link’s dedicated and highly trained volunteer mentors work with young people to help them implement positive changes in their lives.
The move is aimed at helping them remain engaged with their families, their learning and to inspire them to achieve a successful and positive transition into adulthood.
Mentor Link chief executive Andrea Maddocks MBE said: “Many thanks to the Oakland Foundation for supporting Mentor Link which provides one-to-one support for vulnerable and distressed children.”
