Our Shire House Mentors are an important component of the team leading our clients through to an individualised and age appropriate level of self-management.

Our Social Mentors are knowledgeable about creating opportunities to engage the clients to move out of their comfort zone and expand their social interactions. 

Our Social Mentors are expected to have the ability to redirect/navigate the client in a kind and productive manner and tone of voice.
