Hana Butorova
Programmes Director


Hi, my name is Hana. I have a heart for creating safe spaces for children where they can develop their wellbeing and grow as people. I decided to set up WISE Mentoring after a previous charity that served the community was dissolved, to honour all the personal relationships we had developed in the community and enable the fantastic work to continue. Around me are a lot of passionate and committed people, many of whom used to volunteer for the now disbanded charity and want to continue giving their time to the children and community that they have come to know and love. I could not be prouder of them.

Community Outreach Director


Hi, my name is Amy! 
I am overseeing community outreach and ensuring the continuity of the work of WISE in the North East of Glasgow. This includes working with Hana to oversee our community activities, furthering relationships in the community, and supporting all aspects of training and delivery.
I have been building relationships within the community since 2019, initially in the family programme and then as a youth mentor in a local school. Between 2021-2023 I ran all of the mentoring and community programmes of the previous charity.

Integration and Accessibility Director


Hi my name is Jowita! 
My focus as the Integration and Accessibility Director is to connect us with the wider third sector community and make our work and resources more accessible. Both in terms of a multilingual/international context and easier to engage with for children, families and organisations who may experience barriers due to disabilities.

Project Leader


Hi I'm Martha, I lead a character mentoring, primary school project. I get to witness first-hand the growth of the children in their unique characters and in their relationships with themselves, others and the world.  I am so very proud to be a part of this team that has managed to pull through logistical setbacks, give so much to our community and that will continue to make a difference in the lives of those people it encounters.
