Starting Point is mentoring service that support young people aged 16 – 25 into employment, education or training (NEET).
We mentor any young person aged 16-25 who is currently, or is at risk of becoming NEET (including those with SEND). We also work with vulnerable Year 11s in their transition from school into a positive destination. All mentoring focuses not only the practical aspects of finding employment or further education, but also on the social and emotional wellbeing of an individual which contributes to them being NEET.
There is no fixed time limit to mentoring and we strive to never have a waiting list - this so that a young person in need of mentoring can access the support straight away.
Whether you're hoping to find work, do a course at college, start an apprenticeship, or just don’t know what you want to do - we can provide you with the support to get you where you want to be.
