MCR mentoring transforms lives. It is our aim that every young person should have the same opportunities and life chances as every other young person, irrespective of their background. There’s amazing potential in the young people we support, potential we wish to see nurtured so they can thrive. Mentors make a life-changing difference by simply spending one hour a week listening and being there for their young person. By helping to build their confidence and nurture self-esteem, MCR mentors empower their young person to unlock their future.
The ScotCen 2020 Research Study showed that prior to the introduction of mentoring, 59.8% of care-experienced young people progressed to full-time employment, college or university. This rose to 81.6% of our mentored young people. By connecting each young person with a mentor, we can give pupils the support they need to succeed.
MCR supports young people in 12 local authorities across the country and more than 3,000 pupils are supported each week through our programme. Help to support us
