BetKnowMore are rethinking and rebuilding the support they offer, keeping the strengths of their unique, peer-support mentoring model led by Experts by Experience, while retooling it to take full advantages of the opportunities a digital, online, intensive community support service offers. They aim to create materials that are sufficiently engaging to increase client involvement, thereby compensating for the lack of in-person contact, by ensuring that clients have more materials, more variety and simply a larger, wider, offering to engage with, which will ensure that they spend more time engaging and will be able to source and be sign-posted to resources that speaks to their tailored needs.
