Peer support offered in a group setting. Groups are normally centred around a theme such as a shared medical diagnosis, a shared experience (e.g. being LGBT), or a shared interest (e.g. a gardening group). Groups can be structured, organised and facilitated in different ways. They can operate independently or as part of a wider network of groups.
