Peer Mentors

peer mentoring

Peer Mentors are people who have lived experience of the issues facing clients – across homelessness, mental health issues, drug and alcohol problems, offending histories and other life issues, and experience of using services.  If this is you, and you now feel you are in a place to support others, we’d love to hear from you.

All Peer Mentor relationships are unique and can act as role models or a sounding board for people who are experiencing difficult times in their lives. It can be invaluable for our clients to speak to someone who has experienced what they are now going through and help them get involved in new activities or simply to talk things through.

Like Mentors, Peer Mentors are matched with clients and work with them on a one to one basis. Together you will work towards achieving realistic goals, while developing new skills to build confidence and independence along the way.

The UP Project specifically values the role of Peer Mentors and you could volunteer within this project, as well as within Community Rehabilitation Service, and Get Connected .
