Peer Support Project

The Peer Support Project is delivered by volunteers called Peer Support Volunteers, who all have lived experience of mental health difficulties.

Our Peer Support Volunteers are trained by HAIL to provide one-to-one and group support to our tenants and clients based on their own experiences of mental health difficulties.

The Peer Support Volunteers also run a programme of social activities to provide a social support network for people who may be feeling isolated in their community. These activities include the HAIL United football team, a music group, a book club, a walking group, a women’s group and a drama group.

This innovative project was first introduced as a pilot in 2016. Since the pilot, we have grown and extended the Peer Support Project and have established ourselves as a model of good practice.
