Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living are now offering one to one peer support.

This is available to disabled people, people with a long-term condition, and parent carers. Peer Support can be helpful if you are facing a change, want to explore different options for support or want to build your skills or confidence.

Peer Supporters are people who have their own lived experience, and who’ve been trained to offer peer support. They work to guidelines and are supported to make sure they work safely and offer good support. They use their own lived experience to support others to:

  • explore or learn new things;
  • make decisions about things that are important to you;
  • deal with change.
  • always with the aim of helping you to become more confident, skilled, knowledgeable and resilient.
