Peer2Peer development programme

Are you a group, organisation or service interested in developing peer approaches and roles? We want to work with you as part of the Peer2Peer development programme.

  • Booking for the June 2021 information session has closed and the event is fully booked
  • If you are interested in delivering the Peer2Peer course in Scotland we would still be delighted to hear from you for an informal chat
  • You can also sign up to our mailing list below (scroll to the footer) to find out about future opportunities

Meaningful opportunities that support people to grow as peer supporters are important. Peer2Peer is a package of training and free resources that support people with lived experience of mental health challenges to develop their skills, knowledge and experience in peer support.

The aim of the Peer2Peer development programme is to work with organisations to increase the use of Peer2Peer across Scotland. We want to create a learning network of people passionate about the power of peer support!

What is involved?

The programme will involve a mixture of group learning opportunities and 1:1 tailored support that will help your organisation to:

  • Explore innovative ways to deliver Peer2Peer
  • Gain the skills and confidence to deliver Peer2Peer
  • Connect and learn from a wider group of people interested in peer support

We want to work with organisations who have the capacity to deliver Peer2Peer. The development programme will take place over a negotiated number of months. Organisations need to be able to commit to the whole process. As part of the programme, we will evaluate the process. Scottish Recovery Network are excited to learn from working together and share insights and learning with others across Scotland.

Information session

We invite you to join us for an online information session on Tuesday 22 June 2021 to explore this opportunity in more detail. The session will run from 1.30pm until 3pm.

This wasn’t just training, it was immersive. We laughed, cried, and learned together as seventeen ‘experts by experience’, and it confirmed that because of, not in spite of our mental health problems, we are capable of so much.
