Peer Group Activities – Autumn 19

If you’d like to come along and haven’t been before, please contact our Peer Network Coordinator Jenny Pearman, on 020 8831 6129 or email [email protected] 

Jenny supports disabled people in the borough to identify groups or activities that they might like to set up, and also supports a number of disabled people to become peer mentors and get involved in the running of the project and its groups.

Whether it’s a book club in Barnes, a computer course in Hampton, or a social group in Twickenham – just get in touch and tell us what type of activities or groups should be on the list! It’s really your project.

Volunteering as an activity group lead and mentor

We are looking for people with lived experience of disability to support our peer groups to run effectively and independently. Do you have an interest, talent or hobby that you’d like to help other people to enjoy? We’re looking for volunteers to support the running and expansion of our peer activity groups. We need people who are:

  • emotionally mature and resilient
  • able to self reflect
  • able to inspire others
  • empathetic and patient
  • and able to uphold personal boundaries.
