The SWAN Centre’s Peer Mentor Scheme offers young people in Downham Market and the surrounding areas the opportunity to develop key life skills including leadership, team work, communication, organisation and time keeping. Transferable life skills are important tools for later life, and being part of the scheme provides a platform for personal development including a growth in confidence and self-esteem, both of which are important to maintain a positive mental wellbeing.

Young people who participate in the Peer Mentor Scheme have the opportunity to work towards The Norfolk Youth Award.

Anyone interested in applying to be a part of the scheme should contact Anna, either in person, phone or by e-mailing anna@theswanproject
