NPC’s analysis of Chance UK.
Chance UK provides a structured mentoring programme for disadvantaged children in London. For children, the chance to form caring relationships with responsible adults is often the key to ensuring their development into happy, confident individuals. However, many do not have the chance to form these relationships in their home lives. Children selected for mentoring by Chance UK have emotional and behavioural difficulties, and are typically from low-income households. They are matched with trained volunteer mentors whom they meet once a week. The mentoring programme ends with a graduation ceremony at the end of the year.
