Let’s Develop Peer Roles

Whether a small community-based group, national organisation or NHS service, we want to help you to introduce, manage and sustain peer support roles.

The Let’s Develop Peer Roles toolkit draws from our work across the country. It shares knowledge from people both delivering and accessing peer support. We’ve also included a handy conversation starter kit to help you introduce key themes to your team. A chance to dip your toes in the water and test out thinking.

Helen’s story

Our partnership work has highlighted how valuable it is to hear directly from people involved in peer support roles.

“A Peer Worker is a tangible, living, walking, breathing symbol of hope simply because of the words Lived Experience”
