Information Session

Before coming on mentor training, we would like to tell you some information about Chance UK. One of our team will contact you for a phone information session. This gives us the chance to tell you more about Chance UK and what it’s like to be a mentor. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have. We suggest you read these essential details before your phone information session.

To organise your phone information session, please call Amy Dickens on 020 7281 5858 ext. 228 or email

Once we have your application form we can book you onto Mentor Training. This runs over three consecutive Saturdays, from 10am to 4pm, and you must attend every day. If you can’t make one or more of these days, please let us know and we will book you in on the next available one. We start training rounds almost every month of the year.

“If you’re thinking about it but you’re unsure, just go for it and take the plunge…The Chance UK mentoring shows you another side to London, you get to make a genuine difference and, on top of that, the programme has taught me a lot about myself and helped me for the better. If you get to experience all that and help make a lasting impression on your child, then it must be worth giving it a try!”

–Sherine, Chance UK mentor
