Using peer support to provide practical and emotional help for those who need it. We help participants to reduce social isolation, build skills and confidence, and work towards employment.

Peer Circles is a peer support project which helps severely disadvantaged people across London to access training, volunteering and employment opportunities. 

The project is specifically aimed at people who are highly marginalised and need help to address multiple and complex issues. These could include homelessness, a history of offending, substance misuse issues and difficulties engaging with mainstream services. A women’s service is also available for women with complex needs.

At the heart of Peer Circles is our peer-led approach. The Peer Advisors, who support customers on the programme, have first-hand experience of overcoming disadvantages themselves, and really understand what their clients are going through.

This is a partnership project involving leading organisations in their fields – ourselves, St Giles Trust, Shelter and Warrior Programme. 

For further information, please contact peer.circles@evolvehousing.org.uk.

The support project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
