We are a community of people from Doncaster, Rotherham and North Lincolnshire who are involved in peer support.
We gather together to share ideas, experiences and information — bringing peer support groups, individuals and organisations together to uplift and inspire each other.
Engaging with the Peer Forum can lead to personal and professional enrichment while fostering a sense of belonging within a like-minded community.
