What we do

  • "Chance UK is an early intervention charity that reduces crime and anti-social behaviour through mentoring. Our carefully screened volunteer mentors work with primary school children with behavioural difficulties to improve self-esteem and behaviour."

Objectives

  • Providing increased stability and consistency in the life of a child.
  • Reducing the isolation vulnerable children and their families may experience.
  • Supporting children to find the motivation, insight and life skills to move forward.
  • Diverting a child’s disruptive/challenging behaviour into projects which encourage a sense of personal achievement and possibility.
  • Supporting a child’s learning by encouraging a sense of discovery and worth.

Values and principles

  • We work within clear and appropriate child protection guidelines and practices.
  • We work to build and strengthen supportive partnerships with individuals and agencies involved in the children’s lives.
  • We provide flexible, individually tailored programmes of early intervention, aimed to directly address the difficulties the child is experiencing.
  • We encourage full participation from identified at-risk children and their parent(s) or carer(s) in our programmes.
  • We create the resources needed to provide successful and developing programmes
  • We identify and draw on a pool of safe, motivated, skilled, and compassionate volunteers.
  • We evaluate our programmes and their effects and make changes where appropriate.
  • We promote equality of opportunity and have non-discriminatory policies and practices.
