Peer mentoring

Gary Cummings

Thames Reach runs a number of services and schemes that utilise the skills of trained, volunteer peer mentors.

 

Peer mentors are people who have lived through a specific experience and who can use their own, personal experiences to help and advise someone who is going through similar issues themselves (the peer mentee).


Gary Cummings, pictured right, is one of the successful peer mentors who have helped Thames Reach’s Ace project achieve its targets. He brings his own experiences of homelessness to help people struggling with drug and alcohol problems to get into treatment and develop a more structured routine in their lives.


Croydon Reach’s team of volunteer peer mentors help Croydon Reach service users in a range of ways, such as supporting those struggling with drug and alcohol problems to get into treatment and develop a more structured routine in their lives.

 

Peer Landlord Croydon provides shared housing and peer support to formerly homeless people who are working or close to returning to employment.


Peer Landlord London is a new model of affordable housing helping formerly homeless people take the first steps back into work.


Thames Reach’s Employment Academy runs a number of employment services that utilize the skills of peer mentors.
