Application Process


“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
