We provide a range of health and social care services for children.

West Dunbartonshire Youth Mentoring and Befriending Service co-ordinates a successful mentoring scheme where young people receive independent, one-to-one support from adult mentors.

Aim of the service:

  • To increase a young person's self-confidence, self - esteem and motivation
  • To increase the number of young people in education, training and employment
  • To offer confidential support and guidance to a young person
  • To help a young person through their education and into college and employment

Mentors act as role models by build successful relationships and offering a non-judgemental and committed relationship to the children they mentor.

If you are aged between 12 -18 and feel you would benefit from the support of a mentor or for more information, please contact Joe McGinley. Alternatively, you can be referred to the service via Education or Social Work.

We are committed to ensuring that every child in West Dunbartonshire grows up with the education, confidence and support to lead independent successful lives.
