The ImROC (Implementing Recovery through Organisational Change) programme has recommended the use of peer workers to drive recovery focused organisational change. ImROC recognises the value of a range of different roles for peers in all types of mental health services. Whether they are paid or voluntary, working in public, private or independent services, peer workers have a valuable role to play.

ImROC has concentrated on the contribution of peers working inside mental health services because of the multiple benefits that they can bring. Working together, ‘co‑producing’ services alongside traditional mental health professionals, they can offer a truly comprehensive and integrated model of care
