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.

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.
