Peer support lies at the heart

Our peer support service offers a unique approach to support via lived experience directly from other neurodivergent individuals through member led activities and groups. As a self advocacy network, it’s vital that the neurodivergent voice remains at the forefront of what we aim to achieve, and having a member led approach allows us to support service users with the things that remain important to them.


Not only are the majority of our volunteers and staff neurodivergent, but we ensure a high percentage of neurodivergent people on our board of trustees to ensure that the ethos behind the charity remains.


Quoting Brené Brown:  Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be to fit in. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn’t require us to change who we are.


Collectively, our network aims to support individuals to feel comfortable in belonging; to feel open to be themselves, not only without judgment, but with a sense of pride and belonging with those around them. We have a safe and welcome space for individuals to share experiences and be part of a community that values and respects them for both their strengths and difficulties in life.
