The recent impact on working practices for Charities in East Cheshire, highlighted that many charities were experiencing additional challenges, at this time, and that many staff and volunteers may require a different type of support.

In early April, Cheshire Connect trialled a new online third sector peer support group. This consisted of a virtual meeting exploring and sharing the challenges and learnings which we were all experiencing, as a result of the current new working situation. There was such a clear demand for this support we have quickly extended this service across the whole of Cheshire with 3 groups running weekly supporting over 30 participants, many of whom have found this group really useful in providing an opportunity to share experiences and best practice.
