We support children, teenagers and young adults in healing after trauma and with finding the power and positivity in their stories. Our goals: individual change, and change to services and systems.
Our staff have experience of these support services, so can be better partners for young people as they develop the skills and experience to be future leaders. Together, we create ways for them to be heard and influence action as we support those delivering, designing or commissioning services for young people.
Work supported by Act for Change Fund
Peer Power supports young people who have experienced abuse, violence and trauma to understand their life experiences and develop empathy towards themselves and others. This grant will fund training for Peer Leaders to support young people in building self-esteem, creating community and making change to policies and services using co-production methods with statutory professionals.
