Women's Peer Mentoring
Our Women's Peer Mentoring Programme aims to connect women and girls whose lives are affected by the criminal justice system, with peer mentors - women with lived experiences, who have achieved positive changes.
This programme aims to support women who need help to achieve goals and reach their full potential. Through a shared knowledge of the barriers to living happy and fulfilling lives, clients will be supported into volunteering opportunities that will help them overcome the challenges they face and achieve positive future destinations.
Interested in Mentoring?
If you have lived experience of the criminal justice system, and feel you have the skills and confidence to become a mentor, we'd love to hear from you. Full training is provided, and you could help make a real difference.
This is a pilot programme funded by the Pilgrim Trust.

Kate has a background in counselling and psychotherapy with a specialised interest in grief and bereavement therapy alongside mindfulness meditation. She worked within the justice system supporting domestic abuse survivors and recovering alcoholics. Prior to joining Step-together Kate used her counselling and people skills as a bomb spotter at Manchester Airport. She also took part in the "for my future" course which gave her the confidence to return to working in a helping profession. When not at work Kate loves to craft with her 3 boys and add to her enormous collection of shoes.
