Peerfest 2017


Taking place this year on October 9th 2017, Peerfest is a national annual event celebrating the importance, power and diversity of peer support. It’s a welcoming, inclusive and inspirational event bringing peers together to network, share skills and experiences through workshops, creative activities, debate and The Marsh Awards.

We are thrilled to be working alongside Mind and the National Planning Team to deliver Peerfest 2017. This one day event will be a mix of creative workshops, open spaces, friendly stalls and rousing debates.
