Abstract

This document provides a short overview of the available literature surrounding adultchild mentoring and coaching relationships within the context of young people moving on from local-authority care. Whilst coaching and mentoring may be seen as distinct approaches, the literature around coaching is highly limited and the inclusion of the broader concept of mentoring ensures that relevant material has been identified. Set within the Scottish system, but drawing upon literature from an array of countries, the focus is on understanding the transitions of looked-after young people and exploring the role that mentoring relationships can play in these transitions. Written as part of an evaluation of Quarriers Coaching for Life service, the literature presented in this bibliography is selective. This enables an overview of the need for mentoring, the impact of mentoring, and the characteristics that young people desire and value in adult mentors. We have given preference to sources with a UK focus. However, it should be noted that substantial research from the United States of America is largely applicable to the Scottish context; for example, the Big Brothers and Big Sisters initiatives have been highly influential (DuBois, Holloway, Valentine, & Cooper, 2002). For the purposes of this report, ‘mentoring’ is used as a blanket term to refer to all paid and unpaid adults who are routinely involved in the lives of young people for the purposes of support, guidance, and care.
