Mentor Recruitment

Call us on 01522 806611 or e-mail us at

Are you based in Lincolnshire and have a few hours a week that you would like to use to help some of the most vulnerable people in our community? We’re looking for volunteer mentors from across Lincolnshire to work with adult offenders as they settle into the community and move towards work, education or training.

We believe that mentoring is as beneficial and rewarding for the mentor as for the mentee. If you are looking for an opportunity to meet new people, gain new skills, investigate a career in the sector or just ‘give something back’, we would like to hear from you.

So, is it for you?

  • Do you have a few hours a week to spare?
  • Do you want to improve your skills and experience?
  • Do you want to do something a bit different?
  • Are you non-judgemental and enjoy helping others?

If the answer is yes, why not become a volunteer mentor for Lincolnshire Action Trust?
