Become a Mentor with CLI and make a real difference to someones future.
Central to CLI’s success is our ability to recruit and develop motivated and passionate staff and volunteers.
We encourage those within the team to use their experience positively, improve upon their own self-confidence and provide opportunities; applying a ‘recruit from within’ policy and supporting team members to access further education and qualification opportunities.

CLI operate across England and currently have volunteering opportunities in Greater Manchester, Milton Keynes and Bedfordshire.
Our volunteer mentors offer a minimum of 2-4 hours a week to support people to set and achieve personal goals.
We provide three days of interactive and informative training to all successful applicants, followed by a suitability discussion and then pairing meeting involving a coordinator and potential mentee.
We encourage people from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds, and we actively welcome volunteers with lived experience of all the needs we provide support for.
We face a diverse range of issues in our community and seek diverse individuals to work with us to address them.
In addition to a positive attitude and non-judgemental approach, we recruit outgoing volunteers who are resilient and are prepared to invest time, commitment and energy to help clients to create lasting change in their lives.
Our volunteers are the driving force for helping people to turn their lives around.
Read our most recent Volunteer Newsletter, each issue explores the fantastic work of our current volunteers are doing to support people into their community and help change their lives.
CLI treat all their volunteers in the exact same way as any other staff member, and I’ve always felt respected as part of the team. Mentoring and the support I’ve received from everyone at CLI has helped my self-confidence grow massively as the good work I have done has always been highlighted, helping me to see my own value and abilities.
