Peer Power receives Act for Change Funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation to develop training packages for their peers and for professionals

We are over the moon to announce we have received ‘Act for Change’ Funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation to fund the development and piloting of a suite of training packages that will see Peer Power Experts training their peers and professionals across London and nationally.

With this grant, and with help from our young partners, we will develop and deliver accredited training to key professionals and stakeholders working within services for children, teenagers and young adults. This will also enable our young partners to improve their skills, confidence and networks by using their lived experience to influence systemic social change.

Act for Change Fund is a £3.6 million partnership between Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, for organisations supporting young people working for change. The Fund provides resources for young people to challenge social injustice, find ways of overcoming inequality and give voice to issues they are experiencing.  There is more about the fund here .

If your organisation would be interested in training from Peer Power, or being part of our pilot training sites, please contact Hollie Hartley (holliehartley@peerpower.org.uk or telephone – 07894229910)
