Mentoring

ACAA’s mentoring project aims to meet the concerns of refugees and migrants who have come to the UK from Afghanistan and Central Asian countries. This is an opportunity for individuals to receive one-to-one assistance and guidance on a programme tailored to their needs.

Mentors come from diverse professional backgrounds, but will have some experience or expertise to guide a refugee or migrant and provide them with an understanding of their issues. Mentors encourage their mentees to develop their skills and fulfil their potential during what can often be a difficult transition to a new country and lifestyle.

A mentee can be anyone who might benefit from one-to-one support and advice, whether they have a specific problem to overcome or they’re looking for more general guidance.

We have a diverse range of mentors who are able to provide support and expertise on immigration and asylum issues, mental health, education, employment and counter-radicalisation (particularly with young people vulnerable to extremism), as well as general guidance and friendship.

We accept referrals from local agencies, schools, and any other professionals.

We are currently looking to reestablish our Mentoring scheme, so if you are interested in being a mentor or being paired up with a mentor, drop in to our office during our office hours or contact us by email or phone.
