Mentoring/Champion Opportunities

women mentoring adurWomen mentoring. Do you know any women in your lives who you think might be interested in mentoring girls in the Adur area. The girls network would love to hear from you! Please complete the  application via the website here! Training sessions are happening over the next few weeks, for women to be matched with girls at Shoreham Academy (and other Sussex schools) this Spring. After Spring matchings (February, March, April) they won’t be beginning any new programmes until the next academic year, so are encouraging applications now.   

Do you live within Adur and are from a European, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background?

Citizens Advice would like to connect with you, the community members, to shape your local services. We want to connect with diverse communities in Adur & Worthing so their voices can be heard on the issues impacting their community.

This network is community-led. We’ll listen to what your community needs and provide each Champion with reliable information on key topics and local services to share with their network.

Champions can be involved as much, or as little as they like and receive updates in their preferred way – email, WhatsApp, Facebook or webinars.
