Funding: Apply for the Peer Support Innovation Grant! - desgined to support new, or smaller, peer support groups with innovative ways of introducing peer support to the community. Applicants can apply for a grant of up to £250 towards their project, or event, in a round of funding coming soon in October 2021. 

Peer Support Directory: Sign up to be included in our online directory of peer support groups, making it easier for service users to find you. 

Network: Join a network of peer support groups, bringing groups together to discuss issues they face, so that we can learn from, and support, each other. 

Mapping: Let us know what groups you run to help us understand what peer support is out there, and identify gaps, so we can work on creating more support, to ensure there is support for all, and no- one gets missed.
