Paul Popham Fund Peer Mentor Service
The Paul Popham Fund Peer Mentor Service serves a dual purpose, as we recruit and then train current Kidney Patients to Peer Mentor new kidney patients. This new service will aims to give new renal patients much needed support as well as offering them a shoulder to lean on as they come to terms with their diagnosis and the impact on their life.
We would like kidney patients who want to help others to call us and train to be a Peer Mentor. We would like kidney patients who need advice and support to call us so we can sign post to a Peer Mentor who can help them. If you fall into one of these categories, then we’d love to hear from you so please contact us.
