Peer Support Group
Receiving Direct Payments or a Personal Budget? Why not come along to the Brighton & Hove Peer Support Group!
The group was set up by Brighton & Hove City Council in conjunction with The Fed, and is made up of Direct Payment users and supporters from across Adult Social Care including people with physical disabilities, mental health issues and learning disabilities.
The group meets every six weeks and provides service users with information and support from their peers, giving them the opportunity to share their own ideas, experiences and solutions with others.
Refreshments are provided and funding is available to cover transport or PA support if required. There are also representatives from Brighton & Hove City Council and the Fed on hand during meetings to assist with answering any queries or issues that may arise.
There's a facebook page with information and updates at www.facebook.com/brightonandhovepeersupportgroup and a group at www.facebook.com/groups/brightonandhovepeersupportgroup to join, so you can still have your say if you find it difficult to get to the meetings.
For more information about the group and future meeting dates, please email the Self Directed Support team on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01273 294404. We hope to see you at a meeting or on Facebook soon!
