We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the 'APS' Quality Standard by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation.  APS is the national quality standard specifically designed for mentoring and befriending projects.  It consists of 12 elements which focus on the key management and operational areas that underpin the effectiveness of any mentoring or befriending project.  In order to achieve APS, projects are required to demonstrate that they meet the requirements of each element.

The APS Standard covers our Lucky Break Mentoring programme which matches young people in Reading and Slough who are not in education, employment or training, with carefully selected and trained volunteer mentors from the local community. The mentor acts as a positive role-model for the young person, raising aspirations and empowering them to be the best they can be.
