Peer support is when people use their own experiences to help each other. It can offer emotional, social, practical, or knowledge-based help as well as promoting connection, hope and support without any judgement.

There are different types of peer support, but they all aim to:

  • bring together people with shared experiences to support each other
  • provide a space where you feel accepted and understood
  • treat everyone’s experiences as being equally important
  • involve both giving and receiving support
