Report for Cerebral Palsy Alliance : evaluation of the Ignition Mentoring Program

Tannous, K., Dadich, A. M., Beckett, R. C.,

Online Resources


Cerebral Palsy Alliance has been running the Ignition Mentoring program since 2006 to support teenagers with cerebral palsy. This report presents some background on the Ignition Mentoring program and an evaluation of outcomes as determined from 113 survey forms filled in by mentees and their carers. Findings show that the program is well designed, structured, organised and managed. From the mentee/mentor/carer perspective, the program has been very successful in building mentee self-esteem and socialisation skills, with some evidence of ongoing benefits for all participants.
