Peer worker critical debate
The introduction of peer support workers can have enormous benefits for organisations, but it is also difficult and complex and easy to get wrong. The key to integrity remains the commitment to our core principles: mutuality, reciprocity, non-directive, recovery-focused, person-centred, strengths-based, community-facing and safe. Peer Support Workers: Theory and Practice, ImROC 2013
We are excited to see the unwavering commitment and dedication of so many to champion, celebrate and advance the peer workforce within organisations and communities. We all know the huge positive impact and value peer support has on people’s lives. There is a lot to think about and much to do when we change our practice and culture in order to truly embed and support a peer workforce.

At this year’s Peer Worker Critical Debate, facilitated by Julie Repper, ImROC Director, we will explore, discuss and share how we ‘keep the plates spinning’ to maintain momentum and spread innovation throughout organisations and communities.
