Peer Support Supervision
The Cellar Trust deliver confidential external supervision to empower Peer Support Workers who are currently working elsewhere within the VCS or public/private sectors. By providing values and resilience-based supervision from outside of the existing environment, we provide a safe and objective space for the Peer Support Worker to reflect on the unique successes and challenges of their role. We ensure that each attendee has the much-needed time to explore the emotional impact of their work, enhance self-care plans and to identify their future goals and areas for development.
Peer support involves people using their own life experiences to share understanding, hope and improved wellbeing with others. It’s about sharing knowledge, experience and practical help with each other, to improve emotional and mental health, while creating a sense of belonging.
The Cellar Trust have provided Peer Support throughout our range of services since 2016. Such is our recognition in this field that we have been invited to take part in many national discussions around the subject of Peer Support and received various awards for our approach including National Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards 2022 – Peer Support Services.
“It was a huge relief to find a supervision service which understands peer support, which is external to the clinical environment. We see this as a vital service in helping to further develop our peer support workers but also in helping to look after their daily wellbeing”
