Buddy Mentoring Programme
The Family Works Buddy Programme matches Big and Little Buddies.
The programme provides support, fun and new experiences to children in need of:
- positive influence

The aim of the Buddy Mentoring Programme is to offer experiences, relationships and skills which will assist the child to make positive decisions and choices in the future. Big Buddies are volunteers are are thoroughly screened, trained and provided with ongoing support. Little Buddies are primary school aged children (5 to 12 years).
Becoming a Buddy helps children and young people:
- achieve better outcomes at school
