Instilling a sense of empowerment within our service users is at the heart of everything we, in the Peer Support and Learning (PSL) Team at LCiL, do. We aim to bring people together and will work closely with you to help you discover what support works best for you, your child, or your family. We will endeavour to help you feel better informed about your rights and reduce stress. It is clear that having information about your rights and knowing where you can go for help can make the process of getting the right support a whole lot easier.
Our team offers monthly Peer Support Groups, Online Sessions, Workshops and Signposting. These aim to build people’s confidence, knowledge and skills, increasing their resilience overall. We work with people to reduce their isolation by connecting them with others and empowering them to access the support they need to live an independent life.
Currently, our team comprises of Julie Murray, Service Manager, and two Facilitators, Omar Haq and Zoe McIntyre.
Who we work with:
- Disabled people
- People with long-term conditions
- Older people
- Parent carers of disabled children and children with additional support needs
