This event will include
- what Side for Side Cymru can do for you and your group
- what peer support is and what the benefits are
- how to apply for a grant
- and how to set up and run a community group.
Three hours to include registration, networking with other groups, workshop activities and refreshments.
Each community group attending will receive a free copy of Mind’s Peer Support Development Toolkit.
