Innovative and sustainable programs are required to support the well-being and community reintegration of stroke survivors. Peer support is a potentially cost effective way to enhance survivors’ well-being and reintegration. Since 2008, the Stroke Survivors Association of Ottawa (SSAO) has been operating a volunteer peer support program (PSP).  This pilot evaluation will be instrumental in demonstrating the benefit of peer support. It will become a stepping stone for the development of best practices in this under researched area.  It will also provide information necessary for the establishment of a more extensive program of research on peer support for stroke survivors.
