DWP Peer Mentoring Programme

by | 0 comments

A new £3.7 million employment programme by the Department of Work and Pensions, is being trialled in 40 Jobcentres across England from May 2023. The programme will see mentors who have overcome drug or alcohol addiction placed in Jobcentres to help others with dependencies recover and get back into work. They will help others in disclosing their dependency issues, signpost them to help that will assist them to manage their addiction, and eventually equip them with the necessary skills to access education, training, volunteering, and employment.
