Peer Education

“Theory suggests that peer educators act as models for their peers because they ‘speak the same language’, can understand their peers’ fears and interests, know the social norms and are more believable”

The value of Peer learning should not be underestimated. At Shelter Cymru we are committed to promoting Peer learning as a means of preventing future homelessness. Over the years we have developed and delivered many successful Peer Learning projects where we have trained and helped young people develop resources, sessions and lesson plans to raise awareness of homelessness based on their own experiences. We have also developed a Peer Learning Starter Pack to help organisations looking to establish their own Peer Learning projects.
