Paid for and other formal peer support

Any peer support that requires a fee in order to get access. It includes peer support that is provided by professionally trained and paid facilitators who do not necessarily have personal experience of the theme being looked at. This can also include online groups that require a paid membership and/or have discussions that are regulated by trained moderators.

For the purposes of the Hub we also include peer brokerage schemes in this definition, whereby an individual is supported one to one by a peer in order to do a specific task such as apply for a disability benefit, or create a financial budget. In this instance the peer in question may be a volunteer but is likely to have had specific training in being able to provide such practical support to someone else.
