Peer Support is when people use their own experiences to help each other
Kensington and Chelsea Mind’s local Peer Support Directory lists peer support projects and services in Kensington and Chelsea, Queen’s Park and Paddington. The Directory details who each project is aimed at, the referral criteria and process, contact details and whether there are opportunities for peer workers / volunteers. Click here to download.
The work on our Side by Side project has revealed that organisations don’t always know where to look to find peer workers / volunteers, and that peer workers don’t always know where to find out about peer work opportunities.
Kensington and Chelsea Mind operates a Peer Bank for people who have completed our Peer Support Training course (or accredited equivalent) to put them in touch with organisations looking for peer workers. The Peer Bank file contains basic details of individuals interested in future peer work (paid or voluntary). This file is made available to local organisations on request.
If you are a Peer Worker looking to join the Peer Bank, please read this guidance document before completing the Peer Bank form. If you are a recruiter looking for peer workers (paid or voluntary), contact us. Please return completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org
