Peer Mentoring at the Crossroads Trust
Some 64%* of Crossroad Trust volunteers and peer mentors have previous convictions, many having experienced a period in prison.
A good reflection of the predominantly male UK prison population. Shows
that Crossroads Trust are able to supply male peer mentors as positive
male role models to men coming out of jail needing support. A lot of
organisations struggle to recruit men, and this is
important in terms of engagement and impact.
*in terms of Crossroads Trust Peer Mentors, 64% are male and 36% are female. 22 volunteer and peer mentors in total. 14 are peer mentors, of those, 9 are men.
