We would like to access some training for a number of network members to allow them to act as peer trainers. We would require the trainers to have access to a small number of tablets which they could use to deliver the training to the participants. We are aware that a barrier to people accessing the online world is that they do not have devices of their own and would be anxious about spending what for people on benefits would be a considerable amount of money on something that they were not confident they could use. We believe that if people have the opportunity to develop their confidence they will be more inclined to commit to the expense of purchasing a device to allow them to access the internet. We currently have 23 peer support networks across the central belt of Scotland and we would very much like to deliver a workshop to each of those networks. We believe that if we had a reasonable number of trained members we would readily deliver these workshops over the course of a year. The majority of our members have travel cards allowing them to travel free of charge across the country, they have a lot of spare time and by virtue of our ongoing work in communities we have access to a number of free or low cost venues in which we could deliver the workshops. We believe that peer message is a very strong message and that our membership will respond well to being offered support and guidance from others who they feel are in a similar situation to themselves and will be confident about asking questions of peers that they may not ask of a formal tutor/coach.
