Spark mentoring and counselling training day, Loughton Youth Centre
9th January 10.00am – 3.00pm
Spark is a mental health project on Borders Lane and are part of national Christian charity Worth Unlimited. Our core work is 1:1 counselling and mentoring for 11-25s. We see approx 120 per week. Our counselling is all done by qualified/trained counsellors, but our mentoring is done by volunteers in the community who have a heart for helping young people. It is a listening role really - most of the young people just benefit from a consistent adult presence in their life to listen to them. We have got quite a few mentors from local churches - a few retirees have joined our team recently, too. If you want any more information, please do not hesitate to contact or on 0208 508 6743
