The Peer Support Project is about providing one to one support for those who have been affected by the isolation of lockdown. Peer Support can be vital in helping people cope with loneliness and have somebody to listen to and talk to during this unprecedented period
We offer our peer support volunteers a 1-hour weekly support session on Zoom.
