Peer Support Network 2018 Programme launch

Wednesday 6th December 10:30 – 12:30pm

We invite you to celebrate the launch of the Peer Support Network programme and help us shape the focus for the forthcoming year.

The Peer Support Network brings together families, carers, support workers and providers to share their knowledge and experiences of supporting individuals who have complex needs.
Through bi-monthly Network Catch-ups we’ll work together to build on local intelligence and support each other to make informed decisions.  We will host structured Network Meetings throughout the year that we will facilitate discussions with providers, invite specialist speakers in health and social care and host practical workshops.

Come along, connect with others and sign-up to the Network.
