Providing expert training and resources to staff in schools, colleges and children and young people’s community organisations to develop a peer mentoring programme supporting mental health and wellbeing.
This national Department for Education (DfE) funded programme was piloted in 89 schools, colleges and community organisations in six different regions in England
The participating settings received evidence informed training and resources to help them to develop a peer mentoring programme to support the mental health and wellbeing of the children and young people in their setting.
The 89 participating settings included primary, secondary and special schools, colleges and children and young people’s community groups. All were based in one of the six regions selected by the DfE: East Sussex, Ipswich, Derby, Oldham, West Midlands and Bradford. Each setting assigned a member of staff to lead on the project who attended a training session in early 2018. There were two stages of delivery; April – August 2018 and September 2018 – March 2019.
