A hepatitis C peer to peer (P2P) mentoring project established in 2012, in partnership with The Hepatitis C Trust, in order to engage with and support people who have, or may be at risk from, hepatitis C. As an extension of the project, in 2014 a series of testing events were held in order to both raise awareness of hepatitis C among people at risk, and also to increase the numbers of people tested, with mentors playing a key role in ensuring that those being engaged with were fully supported throughout.

This case study provides an overview of why the project was established, how it operates, and the outcomes that it has achieved.
