A charity is launching a new mentoring project in a bid to support young people with disabilities in West Norfolk.

The Futures programme, established by Volunteering Matters, aims to match young disabled people with volunteer mentors in their areas in order to improve life skills and community engagement.

Officials aim to support 500 youngstes across Norfolk over the next three years through the initiative. The programme will include work experience opportunities as well as social events.

Project manager Vicki Howling said: “Futures will open up all kinds of opportunities for vulnerable young people between the ages of 15 and 25.

“By giving them a chance to try something different, the project will enable them to make informed decisions about their future through increased knowledge and choice.”
