Job Description - EXPIRED

Outline of Organisation:

Sova is a charity that works in the heart of communities in England and Wales to help people steer clear of crime. We do this by making sure that when people find themselves in difficult situations they have someone on their side to help them make better choices so they can stay out of trouble and build better lives. And it's something we've done for more than 35 years.

Our experience has shown us that for people to see new possibilities for themselves, they need to believe they can make good decisions. They need their family and friends. They need financial stability and the chance to work. They need a home. Quite simply, they need a second chance. Whether it's about finding a job or friends, understanding how to manage money or discovering new prospects we help people change their lives for the better.

By supporting individuals and families to deal with the troubles that are holding them back in life - Sova helps to create a safer, stronger, fairer society.

Volunteer Mentor - Our volunteer mentors work in the community providing one to one support, on a weekly basis, to local Orbit residents, supporting those who have found themselves in difficult situations. Working alongside Orbit South and other agencies our mentors help people reach their potential by building confidence and self-esteem. Mentors help to motivate residents to find ways to tackle problems, whether they are at risk of losing their tenancy, involved in anti-social behaviour or need help getting back to work and education. Our volunteers support clients across the London Borough of Bexley.
