Peer Mentoring

Our Peer Mentor programme has been going from strength to strength. Using a structured approach as part of a * week peer mentor programme we have been able to harness the skills and talents of people with lived experience and create opportunities for everyone to learn, gain new skills, increase confidence and become ready to take on the challenges of living independently and access work or training.

 Customer involvement through co-production, co- design and co- delivery is also a priority for us and enables Jigsaw Support to truly embed a culture that values the contributions of people within our community and adopts a commitment to enhancing our service by really involving people with lived experience. Our peer mentor teams have also assisted with larger system change programmes, sharing their insight to inform GM Housing First, Real Change and Manchester Poverty Truth Alliance.

 The peer mentor programme has had a number of personal successes with customers securing permanent accommodation, going on to further volunteering and paid roles a nd to courses including Higher Education. To recognise their effort and achievements we hold a graduation ceremony for every cohort.
