The expected attrition rate is 20 per cent by 3 months, 30 per cent at 6 months and 40 per cent at a year.   At least 600 of the 1000 relationships will last the full year which is comparable with mentoring programmes of this duration. As in 2013, the Local Delivery Partners have received a summer payment which is being linked to projects' plans to support and sustain as many of the mentoring relationships as possible over the holiday period.
