Date: 30 September
Time: 10.00 am – 1.00 pm
The Peer Community would like to invite you to its second Gathering Peer Voices.
This event is open to Edinburgh’s Peer Workers, Peer Volunteers and all people interested in mental health, recovery and lived experience, who would like to learn about and contribute their views on how we can strengthen peer practice in Edinburgh.
Change The Conversation, Change the Culture
The Peer Community will be using the Thrive theme ‘change the conversation, change the culture’ as the focus for the day. There will be opportunities to learn about and reflect upon changes to peer spaces and services that have happened as a result of the pandemic; changes to peer spaces and services that have happened as a result of Thrive; how peer spaces and services are responding to reopening of public spaces; what we want to keep and what we want to leave behind as we move forward.
The event will be broken up into three sessions. As before, if you are not able to attend all three, you are welcome to come along to the parts that you can manage. Signups for workshops will be sent out in September, but so that you can plan before then, the timings for Gathering Peer Voices will be:
10.00 – 10.25 am
