What is peer support?

Peer support in a nutshell is about using mental health lived experience to help a person on a recovery journey, helping instilling hope, and empowering them. The person may have come from the hospital or be out in the community.

To be eligible to complete ELFTs accredited training program you must have mental health lived experience and priority will be given to those who have used ELFTs services.

Please Note: At the moment we are not taking on any new trainees for peer support work as the deadline for City and Hackney’s training has now passed, but if you are interested in learning more about Peer Support Work please contact:
