Cardiff Capital Region

Programmes like 1MM are so important for expanding a young person’s horizons. There’s so much darkness and division in the world at the moment, and opportunities where people from different backgrounds come together, talk to each other and realise they have more in common than different, I think is really important. Cllr Huw Thomas, Leader of Cardiff Council

Piloted in Cardiff Capital Region (CCR) from January to July 2017, One Million Mentors expanded from January 2019 to reach young people from some of its most deprived areas.

  • Child poverty in 8 of the 10 local authority areas above the Welsh average
  • School leavers’ basic skills and qualifications below the Welsh average
  • 2nd highest number of young people in Wales not in education, employment and training

We can help them lift their aspirations and improve their life chances.
