Are you interested in learning more about Peer Support and Recovery? Are you thinking about getting more involved in your community or working as a peer?

Come to an information session to learn about the Peer Recovery Education for Employment & Resilience (PREFER) project! PREFER is an innovative community of learning and mutual support and we are hoping to welcome new members into our education and training program in the coming spring.

Applications are now being accepted from people interested in participating in our education and training program and preparing to provide recovery-supporting peer support in employment, community, or volunteer roles. Bursaries are limited to 60 and allow for all training to be provided at no expense to the participant.

Although we are not offering jobs, this program will offer the skills-training and knowledge that helps get jobs in a new and emerging field of service delivery, as well as transform the current helping system based on lived experience and the knowledge of service users.

At the information sessions, you can learn more about the program, how to apply, and how to make your application stand out. There will be also time for questions and answers.
