My name is Toni George. I am the Mentoring Officer for the new 3 year Big Lottery funded Deaf Roots and Pride (DRP) Scotland project.

DRP is aimed at Deaf children and young people (aged 8-20 years). They will have the opportunity to meet positive Deaf role models (mentors) and to show their future potential through mentoring support.

As Mentoring Officer, I will be responsible for developing and implementing the three-year programme. I will research, set up and deliver training, and recruit and support freelance mentors. I will also work alongside these freelance mentors, to target Deaf children and young people.

Mentors will be able to draw up an action plan with Deaf children and young people to encourage them to achieve their own goals.

If you know or work with Deaf children and young people from 8-20 years old who might benefit from the DRP mentoring service then I would very much like to meet you to discuss how we can work in their best interests together in order to support their needs.
