Leaping into action: how to support children with challenging behaviour

Chance UK’s National Development Manager Orli Gorenski tells PoliticsHome what inspired the charity’s ‘Leap’ campaign and how a mentor can transform a child’s life 

Making a choice to mentor a child for a year in the hope of improving their life chances and changing their perspective is a leap into the unknown.

It is a process facilitated by Chance UK, a charity that matches up mentors with children aged 5-11 and supports them as they build a transformative relationship.

It seeks to improve the lives of individuals and communities through one-to-one engagement, and its latest ‘Leap’ campaign is looking to increase the number of participants.

According to National Development Manager Orli Gorenski the charity has historically been well supported.

“We started the campaign on the first of July. Until about four years ago we had no problems recruiting mentors, it was mostly word of mouth and we would have people coming out of the door,” she says.
