The first thing is don’t re-invent the wheel. There’s already people out there who are doing this fantastically. Often they’re user-led organisations, but they’re already doing it. A lot of stuff that I was seeing when I was working with peer support in the NHS was people trying to create something for peers, where actually there were already some good examples of that. And also not to overcomplicate what you’ve got and try and create something new for peers.
