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.”
