Peer Support

A free personalised service to help you recover from mental ill health.

Our Service

Peer Support is a personalised service to support people in their recovery from mental ill health. All Peer Support Workers have their own experience of recovery.

Our service is about people creating relationships with peers and others in a new and different way that supports and promotes growth, recovery and general wellbeing.

What will we do?

  • Share our own personal journeys to recovery, in a way that inspires hope.
  • Offer help and support in a mutual and balanced relationship where we learn from each other.
  • Support you in exploring your own power to recover.
  • Support people to find their personal strength while we grow and learn together.
  • Value your personal experience.
  • Offer one-to-one and group Peer Support.
