Our Peer Support Groups connect people with disability to get together to talk about the things that matter to them. They are places for sharing lived experiences, exchanging information, and connecting with people with disability in their local community or around a shared topic or issue.
Peer support groups are also leading and influencing change in local communities. They are an avenue for people with disability to have a voice on important issues such as housing, health, transport, education, employment and, human rights.
Groups are led by people with disability who are part of the local community. They talk about topics like navigating the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), local activities, and helping each other achieve their goals.
We have 26 groups located all around Queensland. If there is not a group nearby, or it’s tricky to get there in person, you can connect online.
