Adult/ Parent Mentoring

Referrers Do you work with parents with children 5-19?

Do you know a parent or a family who might benefit from having a Community Mentor with them to improve their quality of life?

Mentors can help parents with relationship communication difficulties, help build self-confidence and gain information and advice that could as a result help their integration in the community.  If you think our service could be of assistance to your work with parents and their families, please get in touch ;-)!

Award Adult Befrienders (Posted 13/05/2014)

Thanks to an ARISE award, we will be mentoring and developing 5 adults to work as volunteer befrienders to other adults in the local area.  Their formal training will take place in the summer of 2014.  We currently have 4 trainees and seek a 5th person to join them.
This opportunity would suit a parent or someone with caring responsibilities and or an adult who has time during the day to listen and support other adults to build their confidence and achieve their goals whatever they be.
Adult referrals
We have capacity to befriend and mentor more adults; so feel free to make referrals to :

Kaleidoscope Enterprise Ltd. (KEL) is delighted to be participating for the first time in two EU funded projects under the Grundtvig Lifelong Learning programme). Through these projects we will work with a diversity of European not-for-profit partners to share knowledge / experiences and new ways of working over a two-year period (2013 – 2015).



Moreen, Kumiko and Penny (volunteer) of Kaleidoscope Enterprise Ltd welcome EU Community Mentoring Partnership representatives from Romania, Turkey, Slovakia and Northern Ireland to Hatfield for our first project planning meeting of which Kaleidoscope is the project coordinator — at Number 1 Hatfield Community Resource Centre.1. Community Mentoring for Social Inclusion Partnership –

 In this project, KEL is both a partner and the partnership coordinator. The partnership’s objective is to examine and compare experiences of running informal adult learning and training and in particular to examine how the community mentoring model could be used to improve outcomes and practice in the field. Running alongside this activity, Kaleidoscope will be looking to recruit Hertfordshire participants to be part of a volunteer mentor training programme informed and developed by exchange visits to partner countries. The other partners include a Northern Irish Women’s Centre, a Romanian regional authority, a Romanian professional association, a Turkish educational authority and a Slovakian youth project.
