Promo film for Carney's Community, a south London charity-run community centre.

The mentoring that Carney’s Community offers is unique. Many of their beneficiaries report being ‘passed between’ different agencies (one young person had to tell his story to 40 different professionals before accessing support) which can lead to young people feeling frustrated, and disengaging from support services. 

At Carney’s Community, a young person builds a trusting relationship with a single consistent person; this relationship lasts as long as the young person needs; and the mentoring is taken up by the young person when they want it and are motivated to make changes in their lives.
