what we do

The ASÉ Team recognises Mentoring as a powerful tool.

We use an effective, holistic solution-focused approach, creating a safe space for our Mentees where they can talk and thrive, building confidence, self-esteem and resilience. 

 

We are focused on early intervention. We use a trauma informed approached to help reduce adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and get to the HEART of Mentees’ adversity and/or trauma that is creating a barrier to their progression or risk of the onset of mental health issues. 

 

We are committed to providing positive strategies, to address challenging or entrenched behaviours that could otherwise result in anti-social or criminal offending in later life.

We are dedicated to reducing the numbers of families facing worklessness and poverty.

To train Mentees to develop key skills to become effective Peer Mentors delivering mentoring that cascades within their family, friendship groups or at work in the wider community creating a “ ripple effect”
