Welcome to Peer Support Services

Bringing together injured, ill and disabled RCN members to share experiences and knowledge.

The network aims to build on the work of the previous groups; the Work Injured Nurses Group and the Disabled Nurses Network. It is a membership group for any member affected by physical or psychological injury, ill health or disability - whether work-related or not.

The group exists to assist members in making connections with peers to give and receive support. Perhaps you are retired and wish to maintain links with others in your profession? Perhaps you have recently become disabled and would like to speak with others who have had similar experiences? There are many reasons to join.

Join today

Any RCN member can join - free of charge - and membership of the group does not affect any other forum membership (Peer Support Services is not a forum.) The majority of members join because of a work-related injury or condition, but membership is open to all RCN members affected by ill health or disability or those who have an interest in health at work and/or disability rights issues.

To join please complete the Peer Support application form
