A Cambridgeshire charity is looking for volunteers based in the Ely area to act as mentors for children and young people.

Cambridgeshire Breaking Barriers is a service that helps children and young people affected by imprisonment in the family.

Run by Ormiston Families, the Breaking Barriers service “identifies children’s emotional needs and provides a confidential space where they can express themselves,” said a spokesman.

“This allows them to improve their self-esteem and overcome the barriers and stigma of having a loved one in prison.

“Volunteers based in the Ely area are needed to act as mentors for these children and young people, taking them on outings and helping to provide a thorough support network while they receive one-to-one sessions from the senior practitioner.”

Anyone who is interested in volunteering should visit www.ormistonfamilies.org.uk for more information or contact volunteering manager Tori Burr on 01793 745253 or tori.burr@ormistonfamilies.org.uk
