Need guidance with your peer support programme? 

 The Peer Support in Practice report from Inclusion Barnet can help if:

  • Your organisation already employs or is looking to employ peer support workers

  • You're interested in current debate around the introduction of peer support workers in mental health organisations

Grounded in a qualitative study of peer support workers in mental health, the repor explores some of the issues of using lived experience in peer support and includes recommendations when introducing peer support into the workplace. Peer Support in the Community is also an essential toolkit for those looking to plan, create and develop peer support work.
