Peer Groups

Running through the heart of Breakthrough is peer support – the idea that people with lived experience are the best people to support each other.

We have three peer groups at Breakthrough, where disabled people can get to know each other and relax with other like minded people. 

Members share experiences and information they think would be useful to other disabled people – such as what’s going on, where to get advice and how they have dealt with specific barriers. They are also a great way to develop confidence and assertiveness. People have made lasting friendships through their membership of Breakthrough peer groups.

Please get in touch if you would like to join one of the peer groups.
