  Male Mentoring Friday 6 September 2002  
Two mentoring charities have recently refocused their advertising to attract more men.

Women mentors outnumber men by 10 to 1 in most schemes. However, male mentors are desperately needed since the vast majority of 'at risk' children are boys.
But with the current concerns about paedophilia, how can more male mentors be attracted to sign up? And how can parents be reassured that it's a safe option for their child?
Gracia McGrath from Chance UK and Beverley Cohen from Big Brothers, Big Sisters join Martha to discuss.
For more information about Mentoring schemes you can call the BBC Actionline on 0800 044 044
