Help us make homelessness history as a peer mentor!

Help us make homelessness history as a peer mentor!

We’re so excited to be expanding one of our incredible Concrete teams this year!

Our unique peer mentor service launched for the first time back in 2017. Since then it has helped around 70 customers of our customers with a bespoke peer-to-peer mentoring service that’s full of tailored support.

The service works by carefully matching mentors with Concrete customers in need of extra guidance. Mentors meet with their mentees regularly and are always on the other end of the phone if they need someone to talk to.

Peer mentors help customers navigate their journey towards independent living and support them as they achieve their goals and get closer to their new chapters.

For peer mentors, it helps them to give back and use their lived experience in a positive way.  

Now, thanks to funding from the Rough Sleepers Initiative, we’re able to expand the project and support more customers through the service.

This means that we’re looking for even more peer mentors with lived experience of homelessness and multiple disadvantage to join the team.

Some of our current peer mentors are Concrete customers, but this isn’t a requirement. We’re keen to hear from anyone across the local area who can use their lived experience to make a difference!

Peer Mentor Co-ordinator Lisa Mould oversees the service.

She said: “We’ve been running the peer mentor scheme at Concrete for a number of years now and it’s really successful.

“Lived experience is such an amazing tool so we’re always keen to use it and learn from it.

“For someone just starting out on their journey, meeting someone who has come out the other side is incredibly powerful.

“We’re thrilled to have secured this funding to expand the service and increase the number of peer mentors on our team.

“Concrete’s mission is to make homelessness history. By expanding the team and recruiting even more peer mentors, we can support more people in this unique way and make this mission a reality.”
