Centre for Resolution understands from our own experiences of disability and working with other organisations for people with disabilities, that having a mentor has many benefits.
The experiences and wisdom that Centre for Resolution’s mentors bring can often open doors that are normally closed.
When people with disabilities engage in mentoring programme teachers, employers, parents and carers learn about their capabilities, in spite of any disabilities they may have.
Who do we work with?
Centre for Resolution provide mentoring support for individuals who have a disability or learning difficulty, their families and carers.
The people we support may have one or more of the following disabilities / impairments:
Mobility and Physical
Trauma / Brain Injury
Sensory (Vision and Hearing)
Cognitive / Learning
Autistic Spectrum Disorders
Chronic Medical Conditions
Benefits of having a mentor
Advice and guidance
A space to off load, de-stress and re-focus
Access to a support system
More positive relationships with friends and family
Decreased likelihood of initiating drug or alcohol use
Engaging in the wider community
Exposure to diverse perspectives and experience
Enhancing education and study skills
A clearer understanding of career plans
Employers benefit from a more motivated workforce

Ultimately mentoring, at it’s core, guarantees people with disabilities that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.
