DCWW England: PFG the Home of Peer Support

In this webinar the members of the peer support group - People Focused Group (PFG) Doncaster - explain what peer support means.

The group share inspiring stories of how people don't just get help, but they also give help. They explain how members overcome depression, anxiety, disability, stigma, trauma, violence and prejudice - by helping each other - by being a real community - and by reaching out to transform their local community.
