Peer Support

Help from people who will understand

Talking to people who have experienced a similar injury or illness can be an important part of a patient’s long term recovery.

Onward can connect you and your family with charities, support groups or individual peer support workers who can provide emotional support and practical guidance.

As well as understanding your situation, peer support workers can help answer any questions you might have about the future and how to adapt to your new circumstances.

Peer support is a powerful tool for promoting recovery. Being connected to a supportive community can help you feel less isolated and more in control or your future.
