Leading Together – Peer Mentoring

During 2022, the SLF, in partnership with ACOSVO, invited members to take part in a bespoke peer mentoring and wellbeing opportunity. SLF members came together in co-created, small group settings, to consider wellbeing, creative approaches to resilience challenges, and experience peer support and peer mentoring along the way.
These sessions acknowledged the stresses and challenges of the pandemic as we navigate the recovery phase, understanding the risk of burn-out, and highlight the importance of personal resilience.  Centring on a holistic suite of mentoring and wellbeing opportunities, with a clear focus on resilience and peer support, this offer helped leaders not only digest and share experiences positively and cathartically, but also provided opportunities to explore upcoming key issues, both personally and professionally, and how that can be supported compassionately, with kindness and joy.
