Peer Support Project
by Momentum Skills ( Conditions, Health & Social Care Services, Self Directed Support, Activity )
The Brain Injury Peer Support Project (PSP) is an organisation led by volunteers who have experienced a difficult time in their lives. Introduced by Aberdeen Momentum’s Pathways Programme in 2014 the PSP allows the group to offer help, support and encouragement to others who have experienced similar difficulties. After learning to cope with these difficulties themselves the group hope to give others understanding and guidance to manage their condition.
Peer Support Volunteers and clients meet as a group each Thursday at 13.00-15.00pm. Volunteers are always there to ensure that individual’s needs are met and all clients are listened to. By using this programme it allows confidence to grow and relationships to develop. The Peer Support Volunteers are there to help each Thursday in all stages of recovery, listen to concerns and needs and provide a variety of topics that can be discussed as a group.
Living with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) can be difficult and having extra support from someone who knows exactly what they’re going through can be beneficial and comforting. To help clients’ journey of recovery, our Peer Support Volunteers will be sharing their past experiences and exploring ways they used to manage their condition. Volunteers are dedicated to help clients self-manage the effect of ABI and build self-confidence and self-esteem.
