What is peer support?

Peer support provides opportunities for people with shared or similar experiences to come together and support each other.

Who is this group for?

This brand-new group is open to anyone over the age of 18 with a learning disability and/or autism living in Trafford. This group is right for you if you want to develop your confidence, knowledge and self-advocacy skills, whilst using your own life experiences to help others and develop the future of Trafford services. By being part of this group, you will influence and make change within the NHS and local authority services to create better experiences for everyone who uses them.

  • Organise peer and self-advocacy meetings in the Trafford Borough​;
  • Work together to improve services​ and be involved in the creation of new services in the local area;
  • Raise awareness & discuss topical issues about learning disabilities and autism, within the local and professional communities of Trafford;
