Peer Support

Our Peer Support Community brings disabled people together to share experiences, support each other and try new things. The Community enjoys regular meet-ups, workshops, activities, day trips and training sessions. We work together to create social opportunities, based on the wants and needs of the community.

This project was funded by the Big Lottery – This funding has now ended and we are looking at new ways to support the community. If you would like to be kept informed with any changes then please submit your contact details here https://bit.ly/2yHbEuF

Collette’s story

“As a Peer Support volunteer, I found disabled people supporting and advising each other, benefiting from sharing experiences.

“My experiences travelling abroad meant I could help someone else plan their first trip on a plane. This sort of project would have really helped me when I was younger.”
