The Ipswich Peer Support Group is a group for people with disability, run by people with disability living in the Ipswich area. Group Convenors Peter and Linda Tully host monthly meetings with an option to join either face to face or online via Zoom.

The Ipswich Peer Support Group talks about a range of topics including getting prepared for an emergency, working with the Ipswich City Council around their Disability Action Plan, consumer rights and the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The group meets on the third Saturday of the month, both face to face and online.
