PeerFest 2022 took place at Conway Hall, London, on 8 December 2022. It was a day of fun activities based around peer support and lived experience – from stand-up comedy workshops to Bollywood dancing. There were art installations and workshops on criminal justice and mental health, digital inclusion, peer support in racialised communities and more.
We also held the Marsh Awards – where 15 amazing community-led groups were given prizes totalling £10,000 to recognise the work they do.
