Peer Mentors

Young carers supporting each other

Young carers can talk to each other about any worries or problems you have

The peer mentor project initially started in April 2013 in partnership with BeatBullying where we trained 26 mentors. The training covered both online and face to face mentoring. We held another training session in March 2014 where we trained a further 20 mentors. The BeatBullying programme supported the mentor’s development online, but unfortunately lost their funding for the project.

In November 2014 Carers in Bedfordshire decided to continue the mentoring project with a bigger focus on face to face mentoring in schools and at Carers in Bedfordshire events. We now have 43 peer mentors across Bedfordshire and 29 schools engaged in the project. Mentors currently work both in their schools and at  clubs.
