Female* Peer Mentor Volunteer
1 Thorpe Close, Ladbroke Grove

Advance’s Minerva service works with women involved in the Criminal Justice System offering safe, targeted support and advocacy to women to help them address their complex needs in relation to the 9 pathways to offending, such as substance misuse and financial difficulties.
Advance Minerva aims to reduce re-offending, encourage desistance amongst repeat offenders, divert women from Criminal Justice involvement as early as possible and reduce the number of custodial sentences imposed by Courts. We have expanded our successful Minerva service as part of a contract funded by London CRC and MOPAC (Mayor’s Office for Policing & Crime) to provide services to women with medium and complex needs who are being supervised by London CRC (Probation).
We are looking for peer mentors to work alongside the key workers offering support and guidance to the women we are working with. This will be a great opportunity to learn new skills and experiences, whilst volunteering at Advance. This position will be working in the West of London, covering Hammersmith & Fulham, Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea.
Peer mentors must have experience with the criminal justice system. *The post is open to women only.
