Project Aware aims to create drug aware communities and young people. We have been working with individuals and community groups in Luton to ensure they are aware of new and emerging drugs so that they can take action to stay safe and reduce harm.

Mentor's Youth Ambassadors from Tokko Youth Centre in Luton participated in a 6-week film making course through Creative Film Workshops in order to make a short NPS awareness film for us.

Louise Cattell was a much-loved figure on the London music scene until her untimely passing in 2011. Her mother Vicky is a Mentor Ambassador, supporting and promoting our work to build young people's resilience to risk.

This memorial gig is taking place six years to the day since her passing, in a venue she loved full of the music she used to dance to.

Join us on March 2nd to honour Louise and raise vital funds for the continued work to prevent harm due to alcohol and drugs.

Here at Mentor, we believe the best strategy for supporting the immediate and long-term wellbeing of children and young people is through a life-course approach to prevention.

This means we support young people as well as parents, carers, schools, local authorities, community organisations and prevention practitioners across the UK.

We're also building our evidence base of 'what works' that can inform academics, researchers and governments at all levels who are looking for effective prevention programmes proven by evidence.

Meet our ambassadors!

Mentor ambassadors help young people achieve their potential by lending their name and the occasional hand to Mentor. They are committed to our mission as a young people's prevention charity and encourage others to support Mentor.
