Our Workshops are all about Peer Support.

They are a safe place for people with similar experiences to meet, make friends and support each other.

We talk about budgeting and personal finances. We discuss how to cope and look after yourself on a budget.

Doesn’t sound much like fun?  We have a board game that makes it fun. If we have enough people we have teams!!

 

Peer Support Definition:

What is peer support?

Peer support is when people use their own experiences to help each other. Forms of peer support include:

community groups    

mentoring    

befriending    

self-help groups    

online communities    

support groups    

Support is based on sharing experiences and agreeing a reason for meeting. How you choose to meet up or connect with people is very flexible and depends on your personal preferences. Peer support can improve your emotional health, wellbeing and sense of belonging.

A vital part of peer support is mutual respect; peer support aims to help both those giving and receiving support. Everyone’s experiences are treated as equally important, so you might find this gives you a different experience to more traditional support options. (Mind, 2016)
