Peer Supporters

One of our volunteering opportunities includes the Peer Supporter Project, which empowers young people to make a positive contribution to their communities by providing emotional support and advice to other young people.

Our peer supporters can also act as buddies for new young people joining our youth groups.

Peer support works so well because young people engage best with other young people, who have shared experiences and knowledge of what it is like to be a young person.

Staff can refer a young person for peer support, and young people are also able to self-refer!
