Peer Work within Thrive is centred around supporting citizens to identify and work towards achievable and meaningful recovery goals, drawing on mutual resources as peers and utilising a range of recovery tools, techniques and experience.

We believe the peer support relationship should facilitate the sharing of personal experiences in a way which is purposeful, modelling personal responsibility, self-awareness, self-belief, self-advocacy and the sharing or teaching of coping, self-help and self-management techniques.

Peer working should also help citizens to identify and overcome fears within a relationship of empathy, trust and honesty, and challenge negative self-talk.

About Thrive

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a ground-breaking approach to mental health services across Edinburgh. The South West Thrive Welcome Team brings together a collaboration of partner organisations to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the people in South West Edinburgh, to enable them to live well and fulfil their potential. This partnership is between Space, SAMH and the Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership working under NHS governance.

Our organisations share a commitment to the Thrive vision and values of trust, respect, collaboration, person-centeredness, innovation, and compassion. Together we deliver a multi-disciplinary and multi-agency response so that citizens receive the right help at the right time.

What is Peer support?

Peer support is intentionally using lived experience to support others and is well known within recovery and mental health services across the world. Peer Work within Thrive is centred around supporting citizens to identify and work towards achievable and meaningful recovery goals, drawing on mutual resources as peers and utilising a range of recovery tools, techniques and experience.

We believe the peer support relationship should facilitate the sharing of personal experiences in a way which is purposeful, modelling personal responsibility, self-awareness, self-belief, self-advocacy and the sharing or teaching of coping, self-help and self-management techniques.

Peer working should also help citizens to identify and overcome fears within a relationship of empathy, trust and honesty, and challenge negative self-talk.

The Role

The main role of the Thrive Peer Worker is to use your own lived experience of mental health and recovery solutions to reduce the toll of poor mental health, and to promote good mental health practices, with citizens and within our communities. It is also about promoting the understanding and values of peer work.

This is achieved by providing short term, one-to-one, emotional and practical mental health support to citizens across South West Edinburgh, providing a space to discuss issues at their own pace, explore skill development and tools to support citizens to manage their mental health challenges

Peer support workers play a central role in the planning and provision of quality, recovery focused support to people who use the service.
