Hello, I am Sarah the Peer Support Worker for Spalding, working within Spalding’s Integrated Placed Based Team and have been in the post since December 2022.

As a child I always wanted to work with animals and left school to train as a Veterinary Nurse. This was a role I loved for 26 years, until I physically and mentally became unwell. My life has now totally changed on eventually getting the help and support I needed. 

I am grateful to be working again, in a totally new career with Shine. Looking back at my own recovery journey, I believe that if I had had the opportunity to work with a Peer Support Worker, I could have reached my own goals sooner. I am now looking forward to utilising my skills, life experiences and training to support others in finding that recovery is possible and that the sun will shine again.
