AbstractThis briefing is based on exploratory research into ‘peer support’ for young people who have experienced sexual violence. For the purposes of this briefing, ‘peer support’ is defined as a formalised supportive relationship between individuals who have lived experience of sexual violence in common3 . This briefing paper explores the perspectives of those designing peer support initiatives together with those in peer supporter roles for young people affected by sexual violence. This paper focusses on one area of the findings related to the perceived value for those: receiving peer based support; giving support and; organisations supporting such initiatives. The paper also reflects on the implications of this for practice and future research.
