Local authority partners
Big Brothers Big Sisters UK is a community-based mentoring programme that works in partnership with local authority and statutory agencies in the area to support children who need it most.
Our local partnerships consist of a local community organisation, the local authority or statutory agencies working with Big Brothers Big Sisters UK national body.
By working with local authorities or statutory agencies we can help children who need the most support, in an effective and safe way.
As demand continues to grow on children’s care services, local Big Brothers Big Sisters partnerships can provide an invaluable addition to the essential work that is already being carried out.
Through a link worker, the local authority partner will refer a child who will most benefit from a caring, adult mentor - their 'Big'.
The local authority will also provide DBS checks and safeguarding training for our adult volunteers. This is bound together in the Big Brothers Big Sisters UK legal agreement. The agreement includes all the policies and procedures necessary to carry out the programme in a safe, professional and agreed way.
