We’re recruiting Peer Power Experts!

We’re recruiting Peer Power Experts!

We’re looking for young people aged 16 to 25 who want to use their experience and knowledge to help change systems and improve lives.

Had experience of justice or health services? Want to share that experience and inspire others? Live in London?

We’re recruiting paid roles on projects involving young people who’ve had personal insight into the health and justice systems. We’d especially like to hear from you if you’ve been affected by violence.

Have you had experiences with police, social care, youth offending teams, health and mental health service? Do you know how these services can do better? Your voice matters. 

Join Peer Power and you’ll be joining a supportive community focussed on empathy, positivity, love and respect. Here’s what some of our current Peer Power Experts have said:

“Peer Power have elevated me mentally through multiple terrific training sessions and emotionally assisted me through challenges I faced. Peer Power took a genuine interest in my well being and I am truly grateful.”

“The meaning of co-production is actually being carried through. It’s not just a front word.”

We’ll support you to develop the skills to make sure your voice is really heard, so that when you speak, people listen.
