Peer Support training day

Event Date
26 October 2019
Registration fee

We are looking for peer support volunteers to join our volunteering network. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, come along to our training day at the Novotel City South Hotel, 53-61 Southwark Bridge Rd, London, SE1 9HH on 26 October.


Being diagnosed with a condition or finding information during a challenging time can be very difficult and our peer support volunteers are crucial to ensuring everyone can access the right information and support for them. Our peer support network currently has around 50 volunteers who either have a muscle-wasting condition themselves or have a friend, partner or family member that does. Peer Support volunteers support other people living with a condition, giving information and sharing their experiences.

Our training allows people to become peer support volunteers and begin supporting others. Spaces for the training day are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
