Charity appeals for female mentors for new project

Somerset Women’s Centre is looking for volunteers to give an hour a fortnight to guide and provide mentoring to young women in the county. Run by the Nelson Trust, the centre is searching for enthusiastic, empowering and empathic women to become a part of an exciting new project.

Volunteers will work with a young woman who is facing disadvantage within the community to make a positive impact, helping them meet their needs so they can go on to fulfil their ambitions.

A spokesman for the charity said: “At the Nelson Trust, we pride ourselves on our trauma informed approaches and understanding the deficits that currently divide our communities. We aim to treat every client with a judgment-free, respectful, and individual approach.”

Volunteers will be subject to a DBS check, training and supervision within the Nelson Trust. For more information, email
