ARRS Peer Support Programme

We want to be able to provide additional support for roles which fall into the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) through interactive Peer Support sessions.

The North East North Cumbria, Primary Care Training Hub has teamed up with NEYLA to pilot a series of Peer Support Sessions. A limited number of places are available, applicants will be allocated to one of three multi professional groups.

Programme Outline

We are offering short, themed, online sessions to help build a community of support. They are facilitator led, interactive spaces, for people to come together, share their experiences and be heard. The aim of the sessions is to reduce any feelings of professional isolation and to create greater levels of connection, collaboration and support

You will participate in four peer support sessions (dates outlined below), three of which will be multi-disciplinary, and will be held monthly. The fourth session will bring professional groups together, to help build a greater community of shared professional support.

Wellbeing will be a strand running throughout all the sessions and the key focus of the sessions is: 

  • Starting well and keeping going
  • Finding my place
  • Understanding how change impacts on me


The dates for the sessions are:

  • 8 December, 13 January, 9 February, 16 February

The above dates are now full, and the below slots have since been added!

  • 6 January, 21 January, 11 February and 3 March.

There will be 3 sessions on each date on the following times:  

  • Group 1: 12.30-1.30
  • Group 2: 1.45-2.45
  • Group 3: 3.00-4.00
