Through the Choice and Control Peer Coaching service, a person will be offered up to 10 hourly sessions with a peer coach to focus on what is important to them, how they want to improve their health and wellbeing, and assistance taking the first steps towards these goals.

Eligibility criteria


A person is eligible for Choice and Control if they are:

  • Registered with an Islington GP or a resident of Islington
  • Over the age of 18.

Choice and Control Peer Coaching currently works with two client groups:

  • People who have a severe mental illness and need support to engage with their health and wellbeing, including their GP health checks.
  • Peope who have all of the following:
  1. A mental health diagnosis, or their physical health condition is impacting on their mental health
  2. A long term physical condition, which is something that cannot be cured but can be managed (e.g. diabetes or chronc obstructive pulmanary disorder) 
  3. A social challenge that means they are struggling to manage one or more aspects of their day to day living*

*The person may already have support from Adult Social Care; this won't affect their Choice and Control eligibility.

Being eligibility for Choice and Control doesn't mean that a person meets the thresholds used by the council and Adult Social Care.


If unsure whether a client meets the inclusion criteria, please send a referral for review by the service.
