Our Community-Based Programme

Our community-based programme involves mentors going to their Little Brother’s or Little Sister’s homes to collect them then taking them out for between 1-4 hours to do fun activities together in the community.

The possibilities are endless – all you need is willingness and imagination. Finding activities that both you and your Little Brother or Little Sister enjoy is key, and many of our matches spend their time together fishing, exploring new walks in the region, watching films, playing at the park, doing arts and crafts at the library, and attending community events.

Our Community-based matches typically spend between 1-4 hours a week together at a time suitable to both parties. The Big Brother or Big Sister will liaise with the caregivers of their Little counterpart to find a time each week that works for everybody.

A one-year commitment is required for all BBBS programmes.

If you would like to give an hour a week to a local child and become a mentor please fill in our pre- application form or get in touch with us.
