Aurora Project Lambeth is a registered charity, based in the London borough of Lambeth. 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 commissioned by the Primary Care Trust (PCT) to carry forward the requests highlighted by the in Patient Satisfaction Survey, carried out by the Lambeth Service Users Council and the treatment population within Lambeth.
Aurora Project Lambeth is a service designed to work in partnership with key workers and other professionals in the Lambeth Treatment Consortium to offer clients a peer mentoring service, offering them the support that they may need from volunteers that have been through the treatment system themselves. Volunteers at Aurora Project Lambeth complete an extensive training programme that enables them to offer a professional and friendly service to clients.
The Aurora Project Lambeth offers motivational support, by matching clients to volunteers who can help with:
Everyday practicalities that can sometimes feel overwhelming, including form filling and accessing information around a variety of subjects.
Getting clients active and social, by accompanying them to meetings and social clubs that are available.
Difficult appointments, by attending them with the client, including meetings at the Job Centre and housing providers.
Referring a client is a quick and simple process, by simply filling out a referral form and attaching a risk assessment you can make a direct referral to the Aurora Project.
