Mentoring and social entrepreneurs

Equipping people for future success is at the very heart of Shpresa; recognising and encouraging every individual’s strengths and possibilities is who we are and what we do. The fact that Shpresa staff were all at one time service users, and then volunteers, gives current users and volunteers a very powerful employment role model.
Shpresa Programme is no one thing – we are an effective networking platform, a launch pad to both an education and a career, and a warm and welcoming home! Through 1-2-1 and group support, we enable our staff, volunteers, users and partners to be the best they can be. Mentoring can come in many different forms and is often tailored to suit a particular need, so please get in touch if you are interested to know more. You may wish to set up your own local community group, parenting group, or even your own company or organisation!  
We are committed to giving you your best chance – whether you’re a young person, a single mother, a woman seeking confidential advice, an individual needing mental health support, a volunteer, or simply someone who wants to learn, connect with their community and have fun along the way. Whoever you are, and whatever your hopes and dreams, everyone is welcome at Shpresa.
