Day One Major Trauma Support – Peer Support

How our Peer Support Programme can help 

Through Day One, patients and their families have the opportunity to benefit from our community of peer supporters. These trauma survivors and their families recognise the value of shared experience and are there to help patients and their loved ones rebuild their lives.

The peer support programme provides an environment where patients can share their true emotions in a guilt free and unburdened way, knowing the person they are talking to has been on a similar journey and will have a unique perspective and valuable advice to give.

If you think you or someone you know would benefit from our peer support programme, simply call the Day One case worker on 07375 113 044 or email dayone@leeds-cares.org. If you’re still in hospital, you can also speak to the staff on your ward about how to get referred.

We would also encourage you to join our private Facebook group with other patients and peer supporters.
