While attending CH, pupils receive excellent pastoral care, but the moment that they leave that ceases. While Universities may provide a degree of pastoral care, many young Old Blues start University without someone who they can turn to, and possibly without being aware of the existence of the BSB. The BSB Buddies scheme, seeks to address this problem giving young Old Blues an Old Blue mentor.
Perhaps of similar age, attending the same University or living in their locality. The mentor will touch base each term checking that they are OK and if there is need for financial assistance or other support, pointing them in the direction of the BSB. We would like to hear from young Old Blues, who would be prepared to mentor, or be a listening ear for potentially vulnerable Blues leaving CH.
