SDS Peer Network

Section: DigitalType: Case Study

Penumbra have established an SDS Peer Network to help distribute local information on Self Directed Support (SDS).

The SDS Peer Network aims to give:

  • SDS information and advice from people with lived experience of SDS
  • Peer to peer relating to personal circumstances and mental health experience
  • Local knowledge of what the process can be like by the local authority in your area

The network is facilitated and ran through Penumbra’s website, emails and keyworkers. SDS peers are volunteers supported by Penumbra and all communication is carried out through key workers, so no one will contact you directly or know your personal details.
