Welcome to Lifespace - Supporting young people's wellbeing


We share your belief that every young person in your school is amazing. We know that when life gets tough, whatever the reason, the time and space to talk about what's going on can help them to feel more positive about themselves and their lives.

With more than 18 years experience working in partnership with schools, we know what works well. Our programmes can support young people in primary schools (from 7 to 11), secondary schools, special schools and alternative provision settings.

We offer three programmes - mentoring, group activities (pilots in 2022/23) and leadership opportunities.

Mentoring: Our mentors have a youth-work approach, side-by-side with the young person where our agenda is their agenda. This, combined with the confidential nature of our sessions, builds the trust that underpins the programme.
What do schools say?

"Lifespace mentors meet our students "where they're at", building a strong connection so that they can work on what each student needs - that's why it's so effective."

"Lifespace is a critical part of our pastoral care. Their mentors can give the one-to-one time each week that so many of our students need." 

Mentoring can support various areas of a young person's life including 
friendship and social challenges; school-related anxiety or exam stress; social media and bullying; family relations; being a young carer; exploring gender or sexuality; regulating their feelings and having care-experience.

Sessions are usually delivered on the same day/s each week so that your staff can plan ahead. Regular updates and/or meetings make sure that every student we see is getting what they need to make the difference they want.

Our team of mentors are typically supporting 220 young people in schools across South/Mid Warwickshire each week.
