For every young person at risk – the right supports at the right time, to make the most of their lives

What We Do

Le Chéile Mentoring is a national, volunteer mentoring and family support service, which works with young people and their families, where the young person is involved in or at risk of offending. Established in 2005, we work in partnership with the Probation Service, An Garda Siochana, Oberstown Children Detention Campus and other agencies to reduce the level of crime in the community.

We recruit, train and support over 200 volunteer mentors across 12 counties to provide a supportive relationship for young people and parents referred to us.

As well as our mentoring service, we also run a dedicated Restorative Justice Project in Limerick and Clare and we run a number of family support programmes across the country.
