Written response from the Mayor While the Q1 targets were not met for mentees and matches, the target for volunteer mentors was exceeded. The GLA project staff and the managing agent for the programme work closely with each local delivery partner to meet their specific delivery needs with bespoke support.

LDPs are also offered tailored support to encourage recruitment, whether it is marketing advice on how to attract volunteers and better promote the programme or facilitating introductions to schools or community organisations to support the recruitment of mentors and mentees
