Sharing skills for brighter future
Life has changed significantly over recent years and fundamental life skills that many people might take for granted are being lost.
From basic cooking and vegetable gardening through to managing a home and family, these skills can be the difference between flourishing and flagging.
SuperGrans Mentoring is a local organisation on a mission to help people flourish.
Empowering people to set goals and enhance their lives, SuperGrans is a safe place to learn. Mentors work one-on-one in clients’ homes and in communitybased, low-ratio hands-on workshops, teaching practical, useful skills in a compassionate, caring way.
The concept is simple but the effects of mentoring can be powerful and longlasting. It’s not only clients and their families benefiting from SuperGrans work either — mentors find it rewarding too. Many say that seeing their clients grow in confidence and ability, and the positive affect that has on their lives, is priceless.SuperGrans mentors are volunteers, and while the name might suggest grandmothers in red capes, you don’t have to be a ‘gran’ to make a difference. People of any gender, age and background are encouraged to apply — all you need is an hour or two, a kind spirit and a practical life skill to share. Find us on FaceBook @SuperGransMentoring or call (06) 354-3804 to learn more.
