Peer Connects Practice Development: supporting your team of peers

Scottish Recovery Network

This event is in the past

Are you looking for new ways of approaching management of and supervision with the peer workers/volunteers you support?

This practice development session creates a space where people in similar roles of responsibility can share their experiences and develop new ways of working.

As a group we’ll be looking at the key aspects of supporting people in peer roles, exploring the barriers and shaping potential solutions. This could be individuals or a whole team as part of your organisation or service.

We’re delighted to be joined by Maja Mitchell – Grigorjeva, Impact and Development Manager at Bipolar Scotland. Maja brings her experience of building and supporting peer teams within mental health services.

This practice development session is for managers, supervisors, co-ordinators and anyone with responsibly for supporting peer workers.
