Peer support for children and young people’s mental health pilot

DEPARTMENT FOR EDUCATION

Peer support covers a wide range of activities, from a young person talking a friend through their problems, to more formal group or 1-to-1 settings. For peer support to be successful young people need to be able to get help, advice and support from knowledgeable peers without fear of stigma or judgement.

We know that many schools, colleges and youth organisations already provide peer support schemes on a wide range of topics including friendships, academic support, transition and bullying, as well as some who offer peer support for mental health. We would like to identify how schools, colleges and youth organisations can go about setting up and delivering peer support programmes for mental health that are tailored to their individual needs and circumstances.

This procurement is for a contractor to lead the recruitment, management and delivery of training and support to 100 schools or colleges and 10 community organisations for face-to-face peer support for children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing

Value of contract £250k – £370k
