Peer Power Youth is a young ambitious charity based in London and with a national reach. Our work supports children and teenagers who have experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences (such as abuse, loss, bereavement and rejection), and helps them with their emotional health and wellbeing, to influence whole system change, and with employment and training.

Mission Statement

Peer Power believes in the potential of children and young people. Utilising positive psychology and person-centred approaches to improving emotional health and well-being, we support the development of trusting, supportive and consistent relationships to maximise every individual’s potential.

Peer Power is a catalyst for positive change.  We collaborate and work in partnership with a wide range of professionals and organisations to develop higher standards of empathy, inclusion, diversity, and whole system transformation.

Peer Power empowers children and young people. We create platforms for the voices of those with lived experience of the issues, through storytelling and peer engagement to improve empathy, public perception and better understanding, care and compassion for those who rarely have a stake in society.


Activities: We work with young people with lived experience to develop / deliver the following programmes:

  • Young Commissioners and Influencers project - Youth Health and Justice 
  • Youth-led training for health, social care and justice agencies  re ‘Voice of the Child’ and ‘Improving relationships with young service users’
  • Empathy Labs for service users, practitioners, commissioners and the polarised communities where young people live
  • Positive Psychology, Empathy development and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programmes, equipping young people with mental resilience skills
