TwentyTwenty takes referrals from many different agencies and individuals, including the parents, carers and friends of young people who need our help to succeed. If you'd like to discuss referring a young person to us, or if you're a young person who wants to talk about how we can help you, we'd love to hear from you!

If the young person you wish to refer lives in Loughborough or the wider Leicestershire county (excluding the city of Leicester), you need to speak to John Olaleye who manages our Loughborough Lifeskills Centre.

You can reach John on:

Once you've made contact, depending on the nature of your referral, you'll be directed to the right member of staff who will be able to give you more information and answer any specific questions. 

Then after you've filled in a referral form and we've processed it, we can arrange to meet the young person concerned in a relaxed and friendly environment.

For Engage, J2W and our pre-16 programme, there will be a slightly more in depth interview and assessment to make sure that TwentyTwenty can offer the most effective service.

Once a young person has been accepted onto our mentoring scheme, one of our Mentoring Coordinators will arrange to meet them along with their parent/carer/referrer to talk about the matching process, and find out what the young person is in to so that we can match them with the very best mentor for them.

When a young person has been accepted onto one of our Love4Life projects, a Love4Life Coordinator will make contact with the referrer and arrange to meet the young person to get a real sense of what makes them tick, and discuss the support they need.
