Writing And Sharing Points

Peer Power engages children, teenagers and young adults with two goals in mind: individual change and system change.

We support them in healing after trauma, finding the power and positivity in their stories and creating ways for them to be heard and influence action.

We work with them as they  develop the skills, experience and training to become future leaders. Together, we support those delivering, designing or commissioning services as they respond to the experiences of young people, so that approaches across the youth sector are ever more driven by participation and empathy.
