General Questions

Progressing in the workplace can be challenging for some – we are here to connect others who have walked the career path before and can support you to become the leader you want to be,
connectivity and peer support has a demonstratable beneficial evidence base for those we support – the same
principle applies when supporting other Lived Experience. Even the helpers need a little guidance and support sometimes!

Leadership within Lived Experience work is more of a conceptual framework rather than a single position. It’s about uplifting the voices of people who want to contribute their lived skills to a workplace, by distributing knowledge support and access to opportunity through the privilege and influence that others have gained. We distribute what we have learned evenly so the whole community can grow
