Starting Point Monthly Update – October

The end of the month has arrived! And what a month we’ve had here at Starting Point.

We launched our new website, pumped out new social media activity almost every day, and have had great feedback not only from our followers, but also from our supporters. In fact, we gained five new followers in our first week! Our blogs are getting great responses too, especially Mentoring in Films and it’s follow up interactive tweet!

Below is a list of activities Starting Point has been involved in throughout October:

1st – Launch of new website, weekly blogs, and social media posts

4th – Transition Mentoring Launch at UTC. 8 young people in their final year are to be mentored

8th – Attended the Berkshire Community Foundation Symposium. A great event for meeting different projects and charities across Berkshire.

12th – Great conversation with one of the partners as Grant Thornton. A local business who continually support us in the work we do. Grant Thornton created the link with UTC.

15th – Transition Mentoring Presentation at Cranbury College NTA. We worked with Cranbury Colleges students last academic year and look to continue our great relationship.

12th – 26th – Met up with 4 new volunteers who are to be trained as mentors in early December.

30th – Starting Point steering group meeting looking at the exciting plans for the project in 2019.

Look forward to November where our blogs will include Meet a Mentor, and the new The Mentoring Of series starting with Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter.

Thank you to everyone who has made this month such a success and here’s to another!
