Peer Mentoring programmes are based on young people supporting each other; matching peer mentors with mentees in one-on-one relationships so they can provide guidance and support, serving as positive role models.

With appropriate training, guidance and supervision peer mentors are able to listen and support fellow pupils (mentees); helping them deal with the challenges they face that they may be struggling with.

Kidscape developed their own peer mentoring programme that has successfully been running since it was introduced to secondary schools in Wiltshire in 2016.
