What we do
The Peer Coaching Program is funded by Children In Need.
Twelve young people with a range of disabilities aged fourteen to nineteen are trained in Peer Mentoring. They support each other in pairs for up to 12 months.
The young people are paired with others who are experiencing similar issues with he aim of improving their wellbeing.
The young people meet weekly in either face to face meetings or via Video Calls.
They attend Monthly meetings when they discuss relevant issues and plan future activities.
Each young person is encouraged to take part in and complete an ASDAN qualification throughout their year in the programme in Peer Mentoring.
Referrals can be made by professionals and by family members by contacting us.
