Peer support workers: a practical guide to implementation

This guide contains tips for developing peer support worker roles, with examples of developing and growing in various contexts. The resource uses examples from across the country to provide a step by step structure on hiring and developing peer workers. It also provides answers to a set of myths about peer workers such as peers are too fragile to work in this way and that peers will take up so much time that traditional staff roles will be made much harder. It provides a template job description, a template code of conduct and a template advert for recruitment.
