Charity number


The Island offers support to vulnerable 8-13 year olds and disabled children and young people aged 8-18, in York who are struggling to cope at home, at school, or in the wider community, or who are experiencing difficult transitions in their lives. Young people are linked with volunteer mentors with whom they meet weekly over the course of a year, or longer - developing supportive undivided 1:1 "islands of space and time" attention to increase their confidence and self-esteem, participate in worthwhile recreational activities and move forward in their lives. Many of the children have sadly experienced vulnerability or disadvantage due to domestic violence, physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse, exposure to alcohol and drug abuse, bullying, anger, obesity as well as sudden bereavement, all of which result in isolation, low self-esteem and lack of confidence.
