Coach

COACH helps local churches to support families and young people in tough places by providing one to one mentors known as ‘friends with purpose’.

Local churches are provided with training app, materials and videos to enable them to be effective mentors. All the required policies and procedures to ensure safety and to enable time and energy of volunteers goes into relationship building.

COACH mobilises ordinary people for extra-ordinary community impact. Find out more at coachnetwork.org or watch this message from founder Toby Baxter below.
