Aiming High - Buddy Up

Buddy Up is commissioned by Sefton's Aiming High Short Breaks services and a part of Sefton’s short breaks offer. Buddy Up is a mentoring and befriending project for young people aged between 13 and 18 who have additional needs and are at risk of social isolation. The project support's these young people to engage in fun, age appropriate activities in their local community with the support of peer mentors. This helps to reduce social isolation, increase confidence and self esteem, improve independence skills and prepare the young person for adulthood.

The project works with mainstream schools, colleges, universities and youth groups to identify and recruit peer mentors aged between 13 and 25 who are keen to volunteer within their community and have the relevant skills to fulfil a peer mentor role.

All referrals to the project will be assessed prior to engagement in activities as this service is not appropriate for all young people and places are limited which may result in a waiting list.
