Volunteer mentors are matched with service users and work with them on a one to one basis. Together they work towards achieving realistic goals, while developing new skills to build confidence and independence along the way.

As a Mentor you will be supporting people who are receiving support from the Community Rehabilitation Service, who have been discharged from Bristol Mental Health on our Get Connected project.

We offer Mentoring support to clients from 6 weeks to 6 months. Whether you have a small amount of time, or are after a longer involved role, we are flexible to find something that suits you.

One mentor said: “I wanted to take the opportunity to support someone on a one to one basis, where I could not only build that person’s goals and confidence, but also my own and challenge myself”.

If you have your own experiences of the issues facing service users – across homelessness, mental health, drug or alcohol problems, or using services, and now feel in a place to support others, think about becoming a Peer Mentor.
