Peer Support

Peer Support is a support service run by and for disabled people in the Bradford District. We train disabled people to become volunteer support workers.

One-to-one Service

Our one-to-one service offers support sessions for disabled people who want to talk about issues that are important to them. Our support workers understand the issues which come from being a disabled person in today’s society.

Volunteer Training

To become a one-to-one support worker, you must first take part in the training courses that we run. Our courses are checked by CERTA (formerly Open College Network), to make sure we are working at the right standard.  People who complete one of our courses get a certificate showing what they have learnt and achieved. These certificates will help you go on to further courses, volunteering or work opportunities.

Our Support Work

We train disabled people to become volunteer support workers.

Our Approach

There are two approaches to disability; the Social Approach which Peer Support promotes, and the more traditional Medical Approach.
