19+ Circles Mentor

At InterAct we are working with young adults who struggle to do the things that other young adults take for granted. We do this by creating small friendship groups (social Circles) supported by a Circles mentor. These Circles meet for 2-4 hours on a regular basis, going out to tenpin bowling, pub quizzes, theatre/cinema visits, evening meals and occasional days out.

We are looking for people who can volunteer alongside the young adults to organise high quality, fun, and exciting experiences to support each young person to achieve their goals.


- Confident, enthusiastic and friendly personality with a willingness to encourage and help others

- Reliability and commitment to the young adults we support
