A safe, just and equal world for women

Peer Mentor Service

Through our Peer Mentor Service women can experience the relief of speaking to someone who has been through something similar, realising that they are not alone.

Peer Mentors provide emotional and practical support through caring, listening and encouraging mentee’s with small steps, working in collaboration with Minerva Keyworkers.

Our Peer Mentor team inspires and empowers women to access further support for their needs by building relationships through one-to-one mentoring and group work exploring self-care, empowerment and creativity.

Within the Peer Mentor Service there are varied opportunities for Peer Mentors to get involved with Advance’s work including group facilitation, media roles and as lived experience experts supporting with the co-production of research.

Peer Mentors will be able to develop their skills within the role through extensive training and one to one support from their supervisor, so that they can reach their own personal goals during their time volunteering.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a Minerva Peer Mentor please contact the Minerva Peer Mentor Coordinator, Zsa, with the details below. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Giving back keeps us from going back into the criminal justice system and moving forward. Peer Mentors show current service users what they could aim for. It says something about the service that current service users come back and want to volunteer as mentors.
