Our peer mentor programme matches older children with younger children to provide guidance and serve as positive role models.
This programme aims to enhance early intervention and prevention of low-level mental health and well being issues that can be encountered when growing up:
- School work
- Friendship breakdown
- Peer pressure
- Potential bullying
There is always an adult available to support the children too. The peer mentors are located in Elm Lodge, which is located behind The Nest (The bus). Each day the peer mentors receive supervision with their mentoring to ensure that the worries of other children are not carried with them through the day.
