Peer Support in Secure Settings

Together for Mental Wellbeing, 12 November 2014

Together have published the findings of a consultation project to scope the status and potential of peer support in secure settings. This is the first time that such a project has been undertaken in secure settings, and the project reached more than 220 service users in secure units, in addition to staff.

The aim of the project, which was commissioned by the Forensic Partnership, was to assess to what extent peer support exists in secure settings, how service users and staff respond to it, what value it has and what the challenges are for rolling it out more widely.
