About the project – EXODUS

EXODUS is a 12-month mentoring intervention. The programme begins with 12 weeks of intensive one-to-one mentoring delivered by paid mentors from diverse cultural backgrounds, all trained in restorative practice. It’s followed by a transitional phase focused on long-term goals and personal development. Upon completing the programme, young people will be introduced to local community volunteers who will provide an ongoing, extended support network.

    We’re looking to fund and evaluate projects where trusted adult relationships – outside of the family environment – is a defining or core feature of their work to improve outcomes for children and young people who have been or are at high-risk of being affected by violence, offending and/or exploitation.
