For local authorities

There are a range of ways in which we can support you to achieve your local priorities, address needs specific to the communities you work with and increase the diversity of your services.

Specialist casework support for children and young people

Through our peer-led support and prevention work with young people involved in or at risk of child criminal exploitation we can offer both one-off spot purchase specialist casework and both short and longer term projects. This work focusses on addressing a range of issues including child criminal exploitation (e.g. county lines, gang involvement), serious youth violence and financial exploitation. Contact us for further information.

St Giles have continued to be there when other services haven't.  It's made a real difference for the kids."

Lived experience consultancy, training and expertise

We offer training and support on accredited advice and guidance courses with trainers who are highly experienced in working with non-traditional learners.  These can be tailored to meet specific needs and our Peer Advisors and trainers are fully trained and benefit from continual support themselves.

Our Peer Advisors provide consultancy advice on a range of areas around lived experience. These could include help setting up peer programmes, peer-led research and audits, co-design of services and advising on systems change.

Our Peer Advisors are on hand for recruitment panels, to speak at and support your events, provide advice and guidance services to your projects and facilitate work placements.

We have trained Peer  Evaluators/Researchers who co-deliver research, evaluations and can design activities for focus groups and surveys.
