CROPS Mentoring is available to all students regardless of ethnicity, religion, race, gender or sexual orientation.
Peterborough has a higher percentage of people living in the 20% most deprived areas in England compared with the national average and a higher percentage of children and young people living in deprivation.
Our mentors have supported students through a wide range of issues since the project started, since 2017. These include bullying, self-harm, bereavement, self-esteem issues, dealing with alcoholic parents, parents who have been sent to prison, parental separation, watching domestic violence, violence and gangs, social skills and friendship problems. We also have supported students who are close to being permanently excluded from school, running away from home, loneliness, anxiety, exam stress and physical abuse.
