The overall purpose of the research was detailed as follows:

 

  • to review the experience of Ana Liffey in the development of the concept, the provision of training and the implementation of a peer support programme
  • place this experience in the broader context of current thinking regarding the training opportunities for people using drugs
  • assess the impact of developing the peer support approach on participants, clients in the Ana Liffey, staff and those directly involved in the provision of training for peer support workers.

 

It is hoped that the report will act as a stimulus and resource to other agencies involved in the provision of service to the drug community and that it will make specific recommendations of the further development of peer support in a broader policy context. As the research progressed, the researchers also addressed issues of integration concerning peer support within the Ana Liffey organisation.
