Peer support in forensic services in Europe


This month, Eve Mundy, who works as the Development Worker on Women’s Voices Unlocked delivered two workshops at the latest C.O.S.T Training School – ‘Patient and Carer Involvement and Participation in Long-Term Forensic Care’ – at the Department of Health in Brussels. Thirty representatives from Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Serbia, Hungary and Greece met to share best practice in patient and carer involvement in forensic care, and to develop a manifesto for change.

Eve brought expertise in creating and sustaining peer support initiatives for people in prisons and forensics, including case studies from our work with HMP Pentonville and Springfield University Hospital Forensic Services in London. We received a warm welcome from collaborators across Europe, and will be facilitating exchanges and field trips throughout the rest of the year.
