Working Together, Through Treatment, Towards Recovery


Aurora Project Lambeth is a Registered Charity offering *Peer Mentoring to individuals in treatment for substance and alcohol use within Lambeth.  Aurora Project Lambeth was set up by a group of individuals with experience of seeking treatment for substance or alcohol use and is governed by a board of trustees. This small organisation offers a unique service for clients, offering them the chance to get support and advice from people who have been through treatment themselves. 

*Peer Mentoring is a form of mentorship that usually takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience (peer mentor) and a person who is new to that experience.


"This is a very positive development. Service users helping service users move forward is where it is at. It is a key part of the government's drug strategy and Aurora is one of the projects leading the way."

- Alison Keating, NTA London Manager

Volunteer Roles

Do you have a couple of hours spare a week and are interested in volunteering? We have a couple of positions that have come up within our groups to lead our Art Group and the Computer Clinic. If you have experience in either field and would like experience of working with vulnerable adults then do get in touch. Alternatively if you know someone else who might be interested then please let them know!


Art Group

This last month the art group have been working on collages. Here is a piece called 'Relections' by our client Irene which I'm sure you'll all agree is pretty amazing!

Irene describes this piece as,

"my perspective on my current situation in my life - trapped in an urban jungle. However, once I open my mind up to creativity and imagination I find a path to freedom. It is the reflection of me looking back and being free from the view that my childhood imposed on me."
