Welcome to The Island York

We are a local registered children’s charity, which provides a number of mentoring services to children and young people aged 8-13, and to disabled young people aged 8-18, who are based in York. Each child or young person is then linked with one of our fully-trained volunteer mentors, who, by means of weekly activity sessions, offer them, consistent one to one support over a period of 12 months. Our mentoring programme has proven to reduce anti-social and criminal behaviour, improve physical and emotional health, increase self-esteem and confidence, improve communication skills and enhance concentration levels in the classroom.
