Young people from secondary schools around the city attended The Molineux on Thursday for an all-day HEROs + peer mentoring training day. The young people were also privileged to get a guided tour of the stadium!
The training supported the young people in understanding the ‘SIX STEPS TO BECOMING A PEER SUPPORTER’:
CONTACT - Building relationships with peers who you identify or are identified as needing support, also introducing yourself and role.
UNDERSTAND/ASSESS - To assess the situation and identify if you need to refer or share with staff. To decide what type of support you think is best.
SUPPORT/ SHARE - To raise awareness of ethics and confidentiality and how this underpins and supports their roles as peer supporters
RESOLVE / END?- To understand how to end a peer support relationship, either by referring on to others or enabling the young person to support themselves.
