PROMISEworks is a local charity making a big difference in Somerset by offering mentoring services to disadvantaged children and young people across the county. Our mentoring services are aimed at young people between the ages of 5 and 25 who are experiencing difficulties at home or with education and training. Mentoring can fill many gaps in the lives of vulnerable or disadvantaged young people. It can establish a trusting, one-to-one relationship between them and their mentor. This sometimes becomes the only positive and stable adult influence in otherwise chaotic lives.
