The aim of this project is to support people in a range of ways. There are 4 elements of support:
Direct peer-to-peer support Volunteers will offer support on a regular basis. This will be agreed but is likely to be weekly for a couple of hours over an initial 3 month period. They will be able to lend a listening ear as well as help with light tasks if necessary.
Monthly Meet-ups Group support offers a regular opportunity to come together in an informal setting to share experiences. We aim to have workshops and talks in alternate months.
Online support Established through Facebook a closed chat group is available for people to share experiences, ask questions or simply reach out at any time during the day or night.
Information and Signposting We will do our best to signpost you to a particular group or service that you may need, we will also promote other services and groups through our online Facebook page.
