To the Bridge Mentoring Plus Scheme


Some good news! 


Staff have returned to work to prepare the building for a safe opening, hopefully in the near future when we get the go ahead from the Welsh Assembly Government.  It’s been a long time and we’ve missed you all.  Some of you have shared how hard it has been for you isolating and having to rely on others in so many different ways.  Hopefully we will be part of your everyday lives again soon and be able to enjoy a cuppa and a chat as before.

We have been fortunate in acquiring funding for lots of PPE equipment.  So when the time is right the Zone can safely re-open.  You will notice some changes in the way we serve you but this is only to keep you safe until we are sure the Coronavirus is under control.  We will announce these changes as we near the time when we are given the go-ahead to open.

For those of you wishing to continue renting the rooms we can assure you all the safety measures will be in place, i.e., Perspex screens, hand sanitizer, masks, visors, thermometers etc., as well as someone managing the process of social distancing.

Other successful grant funding has eased the pressures during the past 3 months.  We are so grateful to the funders who you will see mentioned on this website.  Without their support we may have had to close the doors for good!

It is hoped we will have the food-share up and running by the end of the month so even if we are not open for coffee we can serve you with food-share items outside of the front door.

Staff will contact those of you that we have contact details for over the next few weeks to see how you are and let you know the progress we are making towards welcoming you back.

Take care and stay safe.

A Little Bit About Us!

The Bridge Mentoring Plus Scheme was established in February 2002 by a group of three passionate and dedicated people whose soul aim was to provide help and support to young people aged between 10 & 25 years old that had experienced problems and difficulties in their lives. Almost 15 years into our journey and we’ve trained and continue to train a countless number of volunteers within the community who have then gone on to receive training as mentors in order to provide continuing 1-2-1 support for these young people.

Since then, The Bridge MPS has expanded its services significantly in response to the growing needs that our community faces, and as such, we now provide a much broader range of services.

This year we adopted the slogan ‘together, we can’ and it’s with this notion of togetherness and building ever stronger links that we strive to serve our community in the very best way we can. For more information about us and what we do please visit the about us section of our site.
