Our Work 

Aurora Project is a registered charity, based in the London borough of Lambeth and now Wandsworth. The project offers support to people who are in, or about to go through, treatment for drug and or alcohol problems within the borough through a Volunteer Peer Mentoring scheme. The Aurora Project was initally commissioned by the Primary Care Trust (PCT) to carry forward the requests highlighted by the Patient Satisfaction Survey, and the “treatment population. Subsequently our funding as been  local authorites, and we now also cover the Borough of Wandsworth.


Mission Statement

The Aurora Project is a registered charity that works to support people that have had experience of substance use.
We hope to promote the belief that those in recovery from their addictions have much to offer their local communities, and challenge the stereotype that drug & alcohol users are a constant burden on society


Aurora Project is a Registered Charity offering *Peer Mentoring to individuals in treatment for substance and alcohol use within Lambeth and Wandsworth.  Aurora Project was set up by a group of individuals with experience of seeking treatment for substance or alcohol use and is governed by a board of trustees. This small organisation offers a unique service for clients, offering them the chance to get support and advice from people who have been through treatment themselves. 

*Peer Mentoring is a form of mentorship that usually takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience (peer mentor) and a person who is new to that experience.
