The Community Peer Mentors are part of the Durham Police Crime and Victims Commissioners Office; for the last 5 years we have been extremely successful in supporting vulnerable and isolated people who through unfulfilled needs become high impact users on the police and other emergency and statutory services, including GPs and councils across the whole of County Durham and Darlington. We are now taking referrals for those who are suffering from anxiety or affected by the social isolation, it will only be telephone contact from our area coordinators and volunteers; however, at the present time it could make all the difference.
How WE can help you and how?
If you feel someone may need support owing to social isolation or anxiety owing to the
ongoing situation all it takes is an email to the Community Peer
Mentors Community.PeerMentors@durham.pnn.police.uk or to Jim Cunningham
When making a referral please use “Community support referral” in the email subject
heading. We will need their name, age and address plus a contact number, and a brief
description of what the issues are and how we may be able to help. We will accept a verbal
confirmation that a person wishes to engage; their details will be held within a secure
systems; everything we do is GDPR compliant and the safety of vulnerable people and their
data is paramount.
