Mentoring for Young People in Care and Leaving Care, Seminar & Book Launch, 11th February 2020

Date Released: 22 January 2020

At the seminar, we will launch the new book, Mentoring for Young People in Care and Leaving Care, by Bernadine Brady, Pat Dolan and Caroline McGregor, published by Routledge. The book provides an up-to-date synthesis of research findings in relation to mentoring for young people in care and explores the challenges and considerations relating to practice in this area. The book also includes original research with young people in Ireland who have taken part in Foróige’s Big Brothers Big Sisters Programme, offering valuable insights into how young people interpret and make sense of their experiences in care and of mentoring.

The seminar takes place in the Institute for Lifecourse and Society, Seminar Room G006 on 11th February 2020 from 2-4pm.  Attendance is free but please register using the Eventbrite link:
