We know that the best support can come from those with a true understanding of homelessness through experience. Our Peer Support scheme champions this approach training and matching individuals with those currently experiencing homelessness. Peer Supporters focus on building trusted and consistent relationships, and being there without judgement.
The clear impact of Peer Support relationships are improved health and wellbeing and decreased isolation. This is what some of our clients and supporters have said about the scheme…
“This year has actually been good for me, it should have been awful…but because of H3 it hasn’t been, I’ve done all sorts of things and found my groove”
“I’ve got more out of the last 3 months peer mentoring than I have out of my whole working life”
“I was stuck in 4 walls. I honestly don’t think I would still be here without my Peer Supporter.”
