The Gold Coast Peer Support Group is a group for people with disability, run by people with disability living on the Gold Coast. Group Convenor Mark McGrath hosts monthly meetings at the Southport Community Centre.
The Gold Coast Peer Support Group discuss topics important to them such as inclusion and access on the Gold Coast with the Gold Coast City Council and the National Disability Insurance Scheme. They will also be meeting for social outings.
The group meets on the second Friday of the month at Southport Community Centre, Lawson Street, Southport
Call QDN on 1300 363 783 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about these meetings.
"A great aspect of the Peer Support Groups is the sharing of information regarding a wide range of topics for example the NDIS.
While having Zoom has been good during restrictions nothing can beat the exchange of information at a face to face meeting."
Mark McGrath, Gold Coast
