    With workshops, special guests, and discussions it’s a chance to hear and share ideas on how we bring peer support to more people and places.

    Highlights will include:

    • Peer Support in Action - fantastic groups and organisations from across the country tell us about their peer support work
    • First access to a short film from Maree Todd, Minister for Social Care, Mental Wellbeing at Scottish Government
    • First access to a film of Mel Ball, Director of Lived Experience at Midlands University NHS Partnership Trust, sharing learning on why and how they developed a peer workforce
    • Two opportunities to take part in an online workshop
    • A free online delegate bag full of resources!
