About the service

Our countywide Peer Support service is for adults experiencing mental ill health and those that care for and support them. 

The service is staffed by a team of Peer Support Workers. We will work alongside you to develop an individually tailored package of support that meets your needs, working with you to find the solutions that are right for you.

Peer Support Workers have a lived experience of mental ill health and have overcome similar challenges to those you may be facing. 

Our high quality service is flexible and will help you to resolve real-life difficulties and to improve your own independence, quality of life and wellbeing. The service offers you support and guidance to create new beginnings and achieve goals.
