Taylored Mentoring Services is a professional company committed to making a change. With over 10 years' experience of working with young people, we know what is needed to make a difference! It is that knowledge that we believe allows us to make a positive impact on a young person's life.
We are able to provide Taylored packages to cater for your individual needs, with ages ranging from 5-18 years old, with potential for post 18 in certain circumstances. Not everyone is the same and often a different approach is what is needed to achieve the desired results. The ability to engage and build relationships where others have tried and failed is what we pride ourselves on. Our aim is to make a positive impact on the lives of young people in Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas.
Feel free to contact us on the details below should you wish to discuss how TMS can help make a difference!!
We aim to provide an environment for young people to be able to talk about their feelings, opinions, situations and personal experiences.
Our aim is to equip these young people with the skillset they need to succeed in life.
Throughout the week, our sessions are focused on improving social skills, communication and positive decisions within a group environment.
We understand that everyone is different, it is that knowledge that allows us to 'Taylor' each experience to suit the individuals needs.
Our work with TMS is invaluable for making positive change to many of our students, and integral to what we offer now
Just wanted to say thank you so so so so much for your and the teams support over the past weeks. I again note the quality of your recordings and this supported the judge to make the right decision for this baby. I hope to work with you again in the near future!
Can I take this opportunity to provide some feedback. During the time you have been supporting this family, TMS have provided an excellent service. Visits have been regular and consistently in accordance with the needs of the LA/family. The diary sheets are detailed, accurate and provided in a timely way. A representative has attended every support review meeting and highlighted straight away any safeguarding concerns. Your service has been significant in supporting us to accurately assess the needs of the family and decide on a longer-term plan for the children. I would highly recommend TMS should another family require tailored support in the community. Thank you so much.
Working with Lou and Bev, changed my life, in fact it saved my life. At first I was stubborn, worried and scared to let them in my home, but they earnt my trust and most importantly my children's. Their words will live with me for life and the most important ones that I remember daily are 'that you can't fake love'. I will always be grateful to them for all the work and support they gave me and my children. Opening your home is scary, but with these it don’t have to be, take that from a mum who never trusted anyone.
Their dedication, professionalism and person centred approach was paramount in assuring that the Young Person they are working with got the best care, support and mentoring during their time with Colin, Larry and the team.
For over 12 months, TMS and ourselves have worked closely to provide alternative education for the young people that are placed with us. The young people often have been out of education for an extremely long period and through this difficulty TMS work tirelessly in encouraging them to engage and seek to have positive outcomes for all the young people involved. They are extremely professional in their approach and also have great times with the kids..!!!!!! I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other providers..!!!
TMS offered a bespoke package of support to suit the needs of the young person who needed an alternative part-time provision. They ensured they were fully prepared to meet the needs of this young person by meeting with the team/family around the young person beforehand and their communication during the period of support was excellent.
Our son had a positive experience with Larry and Colin as he was finishing school and, when he hit a particularly difficult time in young adulthood, he was keen to re-establish contact with them. Now his weekly sessions are really important to him, and to us as parents. As someone who finds making friends and trusting others very hard, he benefits from the regular, safe and enjoyable contact that they provide. They go above and beyond what we would have expected and he knows they care about him. As well as taking him out, they have supported him with doctor's appointments and meetings with his social worker. He allows them to touch on some difficult subjects and give him advice. We have very much appreciated their reliability and excellent communication.
