Face to face Groups

We have a robust network of face-to-face Peer Support Groups throughout Queensland. Our group members are people with disability, and we unite to connect, lead, inform, and influence.

We strongly believe in the principle of 'nothing about us without us.'

Our peer groups are led by peers and serve as inclusive spaces for people with disability to come together.

Online Groups

We host online peer support group meetings, providing you the opportunity to connect with other people with disability from anywhere in Queensland. All our groups are peer-led and serve as inclusive spaces for people with disabilities to come together, fostering connections and sharing experiences. We unite to connect, lead, inform, and influence.

We offer a variety of groups covering different topics and areas of interest, such as our QDN Y group for young people, our MAC Group for individuals over 65, and our self-management group. If you require information on how to join an online group, we will email you an invitation with instructions on how to participate using Zoom.

Occasional Groups

We also conduct occasional group meetings, both online and face-to-face, with a focus on various areas such as the Women's Group, Emerging Leaders Program Group, Peer Support Group Convener, and Peer Leader and Chairperson Forum.

We have made it easy and free for you to join. Find the location or online group you would like to join below, then contact us!
