Our Caseworkers working on these services help people progress at their own pace and support them to access the services they need. Many of our staff share similar backgrounds and are uniquely placed to really understand what their clients are going through. Our work in this area is across all of our services but ones specifically established to help adults experiencing complex issues are set out below.
Peer Circles offers peer-led support to adults with the aim of helping them achieve independence and employment. Working across London, the team train through the Peer Advisor Programme to provide practical and emotional support to adults who are facing a range of disadvantages such as homelessness, substance misuse, mental health needs and time spent in prison. Peer Circles helps clients gradually build skills and confidence, breaking down social isolation and helping address underlying issues.
Peer Circles is a Building Better Opportunities Project funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
South London Partnership Projects
We provide a cluster of projects in South London which help people who have multiple needs around substance misuse, mental health issues, homelessness and involvement in the criminal justice system. Sourcing suitable housing is a particular challenge in this area of our work. We offer tailored, peer led services which work alongside other agencies to enable people overcome barriers, stabilise their situations and progress towards independence.
