Solidarity in a Crisis (SiaC) is a peer led service offering support to people in distress by providing emotional support over the phone and in person. The service is run by Peer Supporters who have their own experience of facing and overcoming crisis. By sharing their experience and providing social support to people in distress, peer supporters aim to:

  • Reduce isolation during out of hours by providing support that is respectful and non-judgemental
  • Support people using the empathy and knowledge gained through lived experience
  • Support the person in distress before they reach crisis point and help guide them towards appropriate professional support when necessary
  • Reduce reliance in A&E and other health services by offering and sharing information and community resources to help build connections and self-resilience
