Our Work

How It Works

Big Brother Big Sister matches a young person (10-18 years), in need of friendship and support, to a caring adult volunteer mentor.

They meet once a week, for an hour or two and do something both enjoy, like kick a ball around, play Xbox, learn guitar, bake a cake, or listen to music - the possibilties are endless.

Through these weekly meetings a friendship is formed and transformational change happens.

The match between young person and volunteer is supported every step of the way by Foróige staff.
