Peer support can be offered in many different ways. There are therefore many ways to define and describe these different models of delivery.
These are the different models of peer support as defined for the purposes of the Hub. This is not designed to be an authority on peer support definitions and is instead only to be used as a tool to help find certain types of resources within the Hub.
It is also worth noting that there will also be differences within each model of peer support listed below. No two peer support offers are the same. For example some might hire paid staff and provide extensive training to the peers, where others are far less structured and operate more independently.
