Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action were awarded £56,693.00 in June 2021 to run their project for 24 months.
As a peer led collaboration based in Dundee, Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action will develop and share learning about lived experiences of mental health, wellbeing, and self management. They will do this through peer led, professionally supported training and research. Individuals who lead the project, are experts by experience, as they bring their lived experience of dealing with mental health challenges. Experts by experience will gain personal learning, new vocational skills, and accreditation opportunities which will all support their personal development and self management.
