parents & families
Becoming partners with us has many benefits for not only your role as parent and your child, but also for our charity! We work with both you, your child and your families in order to help make positive changes in their lives.
We currently work with the majority of the parents and families of of the young people that we work with.
Since 2019 we have worked with and supported 60+ families and parents. We believe that in order for a young person to make positive changes in their lives, we have to work holistically and inclusively with their family as well.
As parents / guardians spend the most time with young people outside of school, it is imperative that we all co-operate and communicate with each other to ensure that the young person’s best interests are always the focus of all work that we do.
I’ve seen a tremendous change in him and I’m really happy. I’m really grateful to YourStory for assisting him through thick and thin. When everybody else lost hope in him YourStory kept coming.

Our young people
These are some of the young people that we have worked with in the past. We worked alongside their parents / families to ensure that they were fully supported at all times.
We work with families
Working with the families of the young people we mentor is a big part of the work we do here at YourStory. We understand how it is important to ensure that families and young people have a reciprocal relationship based on communication, understanding and cooperation. We therefore help families and young people to listen to each other and appreciate all that they do for each other.
