Do you believe in the power of shared lived experiences? Do you see the challenges people face as strengths that could be used to support others? Do you want to discover more about Peer Working and Volunteering? Then come along to our event; a celebration of being a Peer in the boroughs of Camden and Islington and showcase of local Peer Opportunities.
The Peer Involvement Network (PIN) is a collaborative community of Peers within Camden & Islington that support and inspire one another.
Who is this event for? We’re delighted to invite our current Peers and anyone interested in becoming a Peer Worker/Volunteer in Camden & Islington. We also welcome anyone involved in health and social care services in Camden and Islington.
