Sophie’s story

I am happy all day when I know Rebecca is coming and always happy when she’s with me.

background to the referral

Sophie* was 17 years old when she was referred to our Creative Mentoring service. Sophie had just experienced serval changes, including placement moves in the months prior. She was not in education or training and was in the process of applying for college courses and working out her options for the future.

Sophie was really struggling with self-confidence, had a diagnosis of ADHD and, therefore, issues with concentration. According to her social worker, she also struggled with maturity. This played its part in Sophie regularly staying in her room all day. It was hoped that, by referring Sophie for Creative Mentoring, she would gain confidence through exploring her passion for writing while getting to know her local community, including clubs and youth groups that would support her to make friendships.
