Real Insight is a group of inspirational people with lived experience from secure settings and multiple disadvantages. Our work transform services by creating a shift in culture. We do this by collaborating with service providers; involving staff, carers and peers through our innovative methods.

We have been able to successfully manage this due to the non-judgemental commitment from our host organisation NSUN (National Survivor User Network).

As a user-led organisation itself, NSUN empathise and use their own experiences and learning to positively support without prejudices despite the challenges we all face daily.

These arrangements demonstrate the benefits of peer to peer support at all levels.

After four years of NSUN hosting us, we are now independently managing our own day to day business activity. They are still there providing some mentoring, which is very reassuring.

From our experience, we believe that newly set up user-led projects should always get the opportunity to get support from already established user-led organisations like NSUN.
