Please contact us for more information on peer facilitation training.

We run groups in three age groups, at various times – check our current schedule above:

10/11;    12/13;    14-16

Groups run after school weekly for 9-12 sessions.

The format is interactive and incorporates a check-in each day, a topic for the day and two or three activities to illustrate the topic such as art activities, journaling, role plays, and discussion (large and small groups).

The content of the groups’ sessions includes:

  • communication skills,
  • healthy relationships,
  • mental health,
  • substance misuse,
  • the role power in relationships,
  • gender stereotypes,
  • violence in relationships,
  • friendships and family,
  • substance use,
  • sexual health,
  • self-care,
  • media literacy
  • body image


As a young adult, the skills I have learned from being a peer facilitator have been so valuable personally and professionally. My experience was hugely influential to my studying Social Work.

I found I had a lot to offer to the younger girls and was happy I was a supportive person to these girls.

I liked feeling like an “equal” to my co-facilitator who is so experienced.
