PROMISE is a Somerset county wide mentoring and advocacy service for young people and children aged between 5 and 19 years who are experiencing difficulties at home, in care or with education and training. We also support care leavers beyond the age of 19.
PROMISE mentors and young people make a minimum two year commitment, which will involve weekly meetings following appropriate matching arrangements. Many relationships continue well beyond 2 years. Intensive professional support is provided to mentors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
