We provide support for people who are in early recovery from drug and alcohol misuse and/or mental illness by matching them with trained volunteer peer mentors. The peer mentors use their own experience (direct or indirect) of recovery to support their peer and help them to realise their potential.
We also deliver training at the service including ETE and ITQ, behavioural life skills, and Recovery through Nature.

Who we help
People aged 18 years or over experiencing drug and alcohol and/or mental health problems.
Peer Mentors will be competent and supported to hold a small caseload of mentees provided by partner agencies or self-referral. Mentors are sourced from the community and are all voluntarily
Mentors are DBS checked and are supervised regularly. They will be matched to a service user according to their skill set and interests by the designated staff service coordinator
If a mentor is in recovery, the mentor is supported to seek their own support structure to maintain their own wellbeing.
Mentors are encouraged to complete CPD to promote confidence and employability.
