Solace Peer Support has been awarded funding by Matrix Chambers to design a peer support training programme. Funding from Matrix Chambers has enabled a series of focus groups to inform the design of training and service delivery.

The training will focus on 3 core components:

  • Insights from Experts by Experience- learning based on case studies of women’s experiences of social marginalisation and pregnancy
  • Theoretical Basis of Social Marginalisation– insights into key topics including: trauma, oppression, loss and grief
  • Practical Support Skills- birth partner support, and support skills during pregnancy and the postnatal period
