Our Vision

Our vision is a country where young people are informed and empowered to make the best, healthiest choices for themselves as they grow up.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to ensure every young person in the UK has access to the facts when it comes to alcohol and other drugs and is supported in developing essential life-skills and self-worth. Empowering them to make healthy, positive choices as they grow up.


Thanks to the work of Mentor and organisations like us, the number of young people drinking, smoking or trying illicit drugs has plummeted over the last decade. It is something we’re hugely proud of.  Yet, for the most vulnerable communities the picture is very different. Drug and alcohol misuse continues to destroy the lives of young people and their families. We work directly with young people, giving them the skills, knowledge and self-confidence to tackle the challenges they face and go on to fulfil their potential. But we can’t do it without your support.

Donate today and help transform young people’s lives. Thank you.
