Speaking after a visit to Birmingham Changing Futures Together’s Lead Worker Peer Mentor service, Norman Lamb MP said:
“The Lead Worker Peer Mentor service does vitally important work. I was immensely impressed by the team of people I met. Their dedication and commitment are clear.
“I was particularly impressed by the Peer Mentors, those who have experienced street homelessness and are now working to support others. I’m conscious this sort of peer mentoring is enormously effective in engaging with street homeless people who may be suspicious of people who do not have lived experience.”
