attachment focused mentoring and support services

Cherished offers a range of group and 1:1 mentoring options, to meet the unique needs of each girl we support. We have a dedicated team of highly-trained, volunteer mentors who go into Primary and Secondary schools across North Birmingham to deliver our creative mentoring sessions and run The Cherished Course and Blossom groups.

Attachment focused mentoring has never been more crucial


Over a third of girls in the UK suffer with depression and anxiety

7 in 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way

1 in 3 adult mental health conditions relate directly to adverse childhood experiences



The symptoms of trauma can disrupt a girl's education and are mentally and physically damaging.

If we don't intervene, what will happen to these girls?
