Peer Consultants

The Peer Consultants scheme offers service users paid work experience within the organisation, with roles including Newsletter Consultant, GetReady Life Skills Consultant, GetSET Consultant and Drop-In Development Consultant. Each post follows a proper recruitment process, and echoes the real-life experience of job retention and personal and professional development. The scheme has expanded since its successful pilot, which saw Peer Consultants move into paid employment elsewhere and graduate into the Wish STEPS scheme. The Peer Consultants form an important part of the running of the organisation, and become inspirational role models to the wider Wish membership.
