Welcome to Ment4

Ment4 provides one-to-one specialist mentoring for 12 to 17 year olds with emotional and behavioural difficulties. We help those vulnerable to crime and those on court orders. We also help long-term non-attendees or those excluded from Schools and Pupil Referral Units, and those judged as particularly vulnerable by Social Services.

Based in Croydon, we run four to six month programmes where mentors spend up to ten hours a week with their assigned young people, one-on-one, working through problematic thinking and helping them achieve measurable written goals. All progress and critical issues are regularly reported to referring agencies through weekly reports and attendance at professional panel meetings.


Successes with young people in criminal justice, from a recent sample, show:

  • 87.5% lower re-offending rates
  • 71% reduced problem behaviours
  • 100% family involvement

Successes with young people in educational non-attendance, from a recent sample, show:

  • 100% education engagement
  • 100% reduced problem behaviours
  • 100% family involvement

Whether you are an agency helping young people or a young person yourself. Feel free to contact us to chat about how we can help, or to use our resources.



‘We will use Ment 4 again to help us support our vulnerable young people re-engage with education. They have been professional in all our discussions and I look forward to working with them in the future.’ (Croydon Educational Agency)


‘He would have certainly breached had he not had this level of support from his mentor. Communication has been brilliant and the mentor has been in contact with his case worker almost every day.’ (Croydon Youth Justice Agency)
