One-to-one mentor support
The Big Lottery Fund and ESF have granted Hertfordshire County Council £5.5 million to help boost skills for residents. In partnership with Hertfordshire County Council and charities across the county, Druglink is taking part in the STRIVE Project, which provides one-to-one mentor support for those with drug and/or alcohol issues as well as offering a range of courses.
As part of the STRIVE Project, participants will receive support from a STRIVE mentor, who will give individual advice and guidance for those who are working towards volunteering and who face difficulties with employment. Druglink’s learning mentor puts together personalised plans that helps people move towards their goals at their own pace, offering one-to-one support to allow people to achieve their full potential.
STRIVE is part of the Building Better Opportunities project, which is led by Hertfordshire County Council and has 20 voluntary and community sector partners from across the county. It aims to tackle the root causes of poverty and unemployment, such as physical and mental health issues, homelessness, addiction and much more.
