Person centred Non-clinical Peer Support

Our Hope team are here to help people who have visited the Safe Spaces crisis service, and feel afterwards that they would benefit from some further follow-up support.

This service provides support on a 1-2-1 basis over a 6 week period, with the option of further group work.

What to expect

Week 1

You will meet your peer support worker. We will explain the scope of support you can expect and talk about the importance of setting
boundaries. You will need to complete a data protection form and mental wellbeing questionnaire.

Week 2

This week we will discuss your experiences. It’s a chance for you to talk about what’s been happening for

We will:

  • explore these experiences and perceptions together
  • begin to identify your goals and the barriers to achieving them
  • begin action planning so that we can work towards achieving your goals and overcoming the barriers

Week 3-5

During this time we will breakdown your action plan and make priorities along the way.
We are now half way through so we will review your progress to date and any remaining goals.
This week we will begin to prepare for what happens at the end of your time with us. We will also identify and arrange any long term support you might need.

Week 6

This is your final session. We will take a look back and review all your progress. We will also take a look at any actions or next steps.
This session will be used to gather your feedback with a follow-up questionnaire.
You can also use this session to signup to a peer support group or further training. You can also join the Being Well in Adversity Group.

We will make any referrals and signpost you to relevant services throughout your time with us.

“The support has been invaluable and genuine, I feel like I finally have some fight back within myself.”
