Be part of Peer Support in Action!

We’re pulling out all the stops to support and showcase all the fantastic peer support activity happening in Scotland!

Participate in an online event. Tune in to a live stream. Shine a spotlight on your peer group, project, service, or organisation. Oh, and there are lots of free tools to access as well! Tools full of ideas and learning from people planning and delivering peer activities, to help you do the same!

Be part of Peer Support in Action! as we work together to develop the peer landscape in Scotland and show the world what peer support can do!

Peer Chat Live at Lunch

Peer Chat Live at Lunch is a 30 minute online discussion and live Q&A. It will be broadcast to our Facebook and Twitter channels. Hosted by our very own Projects Coordinator Holly Hendry, we’ll welcome a different guest each time and explore themes related to peer support in Scotland

Each Peer Chat Live at Lunch will focus on the forth-coming themes of a Peer Connects event. BUT you don’t have to be coming to that event to still get loads of learning from the live stream! Think Peer Chat Live at Lunch as a warm up, an added extra or a chance to still be involved if you can’t make it along to Peer Connects.

Peer Support and Us

We know that there is fantastic peer support work going on across Scotland and we want to tell……everyone!

Our Peer Support and Us series will use blogs, vlogs, photography, audio, film and animation to showcase the fabulous and often under recognised peer support work you do. As well as shining a light on the difference you are making, it will help us to share ideas and learning with other people looking to get involved/develop peer support activities! Truly Peer Support in Action!

The Peer Recovery Hub

Over the summer we’re doing a bit of a refresh of the Peer Recovery Hub. Watch this space for the re-launch of this one-stop peer support shop. Meanwhile we still have LOADS of resources and learning in the hub and in the Resources section of our website. Just type peer support in the search box on the left hand side of the page!
