Peer Support is an effective method for helping people facing barriers to realise their potential.
"A peer support network for those with a disability seeking work would be a welcome addition to the current supports available. By being able to access this online as well as face to face will enable those with a range of needs to benefit in a way that most suits them. Being able to share concerns and positive experiences about their journey into employment could prove invaluable" - Tommy Sheppard MP
Why Peer Support for Work?
Back in 2013 SUSE spoke to disabled people and supported employment clients who told us that they thought peer support was a really important way to improve their confidence relating to work. Through the More than the Sum of the Parts Big Lottery Project we have set up a Peer Support for Work Network.
