Peer group support

We know that connecting with peers across health and care is important for:

  • Sharing experiences and ideas
  • Connecting with others working in similar situations or facing similar issues 
  • Connecting with others to get and give support in knowing we are not alone, we are in this together
  • Creating a safe place to share concerns and learn from each other.

Join the ‘ProjectM – Managing together’ peer group to network and share with other leaders and managers across the service.

Self care

To be able to support and lead others, you told us that starting with yourself was important. Here are some suggested resources to help focus on self-care.

Team care

Keeping your team well is also important to you. Here are some resources that may help.

Peer support and inclusion

As leaders and managers, you told us how important it is to stay connected with your peers. Being in safe and inclusive spaces to connect with others is something you can create together. Here are some ideas.  

Sharing ideas

We heard that finding time and space to share and help others can be difficult. Change the way you do the things you already do to help others think, contribute and thrive.

Leading outwards and upwards

The ‘space’ occupied by a manager or a leader can be a challenge. These resources will give you some ideas to manage the tensions you face.
