Event description
Community of Practice for NGO Mental Health Lived Experience (Peer) Workforce

About this Event

The Community of Practice has been established in response to needs expressed by members of the NGO Lived Experience (Peer) Workforce and was established through a co-design process with members of the LEWP Reference Group in 2019, with 5 sessions conducted.

The purpose of coming together as a Community of Practice is for Peer Workers to share with others in Lived Experience roles and to develop skills and knowledge, based on Peer Work-specific best practice.

The Community of Practice is open to people in paid employment within the NGO mental health sector, as well as Independent Peer Workers who accept participants from NGOs, in which utilisation of mental health Lived Experience expertise is noted as a key essential criterion of their position. We also welcome designated NGO Peer Workers who have lived experience of mental illness and recovery but whose primary lived experience practice is in related specialist areas such as gambling, AoD, homelessness.

Members are welcome to BYO lunch, notebook and pen. Tea and coffee provided.

On-street parking available, please be aware of time limits.
