Peer support is a big part of how Breakthrough does things.
Peer support means that people who have been through the same thing as you are the best people to help you.
We have several peer groups that disabled people can join.
You can come along, enjoy a cuppa and relax with others who think like you.
At these groups, members can talk about their lives. They can also share information they think would be useful to other people.
This can be about what is going on, where to get advice and how they have dealt with things.
They are also a great way to get more confident.
People have made friends through being part of Breakthrough’s peer groups.
The main Breakthrough peer group is open to our clients only.
If you wish to join, please speak to your advisor.
We meet weekly on a Tuesday afternoon.
We are training disabled people to run this group.
If you would like to know more, please contact Elaine on 0161 234 3950, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 0738 019 7292.
We plan to set up similar groups in different areas over the next year.
There are also some Breakthrough peer groups which are part of our other projects.
These projects are called ‘Talent Match’, ‘J2E’ and ‘Let’s Have a Good Week’.
