Join us for a forum on employing People With Lived and Living Experience (PWLLE) in peer roles. This forum will include three presentations highlighting the different aspects of employing PWLLE from local organizations in Peterborough, Ontario and a presentation from Support House on best practices, recommendations, and what else is happening around the province. There will be opportunities for questions after each presentation and a panel discussion at the end. The goals for this forum are:

  • To provide local and provincial perspectives on the different aspects of employing PWLLE.
  • To review the positive impacts, challenges, and recommendations for employing PWLLE.
  • To help establish new connections and collaborations between organizations, PWLLE, and service providers.
  • To provide opportunities to ask questions and engage across disciplines and sectors.
