Trailblazers Mentoring

Trail-Blazers Mentoring Ltd (known as Trailblazers) is a national charity that reduces re-offending among young people through providing volunteer mentors.

Established in 1998 we have grown to become one of England’s best established charities providing support both inside Youth Offending Institutions (YOIs) and on release into the community.

At Trailblazers we believe that each young person has the potential to lead a life free from crime and be a positive member of society. We reduce re-offending in young people by helping them change their attitude, thinking and behaviour through intensive mentoring, advice, advocacy and targeted specialist support.
