Peer Mentoring Opportunities for Looked After Children and Care Leavers

This report and its recommendations are the result of a small project exploring services offering and

research around peer mentoring and how such practice could be developed to improve outcomes for Looked After Children and Care Leavers in Scotland.


Many thanks are due to a number of adults, from statutory and voluntary sectors, who gave of their time to share their knowledge and expertise and to explore the opportunities presented through Peer Mentoring. The interest in and enthusiasm for the potential benefits of Peer Mentoring were evident throughout our discussions. Particular thanks are also due to colleagues who have shared training programmes and other relevant materials which will be of great value to the development of practice.

Special thanks must go to the young adults, Tony, Sarah and Ashley and Debate project members, Gemma, Jenny, Cheryl, James, Alistair, Alex and Murray who all demonstrated a serious commitment to considering and developing ideas which they believe could improve the lives of Looked After Children and Care Leavers in the future.
