How does it work?
Mentors on The Switch are volunteers aged 21 – 40 who live in London. They have committed to supporting a young person for around five hours a month for 6 –12 months.
We’ve had a phenomenal response from volunteers wanting to become mentors for The Switch. This is great news and we’ve been thrilled with the positive response. But it means that the only applications we can take now are from young men aged 21-40 who wish to volunteer as mentors with the project. This is because we like to match mentees and mentors of the same gender - and at the moment only young men are waiting to meet a mentor.
But do come back to check the website soon as we hope to expand the project and take on more volunteers!

The project is only open to young people who are accessing Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in London, and you need to be referred by CAMHS.
