This conference will explore how evidenced based mentoring interventions can strengthen the protective factors in young people’s lives, enabling them to cope with adversity. It will focus on the need to provide opportunities, through research and practice, to listen to the perspectives of young people and stakeholders and tailor the provision of services to meet their needs.
