For Leaders of Lived Experience Workforce

For Leaders of Lived Experience Workforce


Professional Development for Leaders

The LEWP provides free training for people who directly supervise Lived Experience Workers (LEWs), or who are working towards a role in which they will.

Our series of sessions, under the heading ‘Leading Lived Experience in the Workplace: LEt’s Talk About…’ covers:

1. Strengths-based Recruitment of LEW
2. Establishing the Role
3. Supervision of LEW
4. Supporting Wellbeing and Resilience

The aim is to increase knowledge of the Lived Experience skill set, increase confidence in leading LEWs and promoting an effective LEW-Leader working relationship.

Registrations are open to LEWs from both the NGO and Government mental health sectors.

No sessions currently scheduled. If you are a mental health NGO and are interested in delivery of these workshops in-house in 2020, please contact LEWP.

Support for Organisations

Together with our Reference Group, the LEWP has co-produced a range of tools designed to support organisations who have, or are preparing to implement, LEW. Documents such as the NGO LEW Standards and Guidelines cover all aspects of workforce development, e.g. organisational preparation, recruitment, retention and development.

The tools can be downloaded here.
