Peer Support - Evidence and Learning
The evaluation of our Peer Support initiative is being carried out by University of Stirling. We will publish their report in Spring 2020.
The Trust funded five Peer Support projects. As we have funded, we have also produced two reports to gather more understanding of the benefits of peer support for people affected by dementia and for unpaid carers of those with dementia.
These reports are intended to share this learning and demonstrate why peer support is so important to improving the quality of life for people living with dementia and those who care for them.
They show the positive difference that peer support can make to health and wellbeing, to confidence and self-esteem and to reducing social isolation and loneliness.
