This review found evidence that peer support can help people feel more knowledgeable, confident and happy, and less isolated and alone. It also showed that there is a limited understanding of the different forms of peer support, how best to deliver support and the forms of training and infrastructure to get the most impact from it. It concludes that further evidence is needed to fully understand the impact that peer support has on the health service and individuals with long-term health conditions.
