New Peer Support Group in Brisbane South
QDN held its first meeting in Brisbane South Supported Independent Living complex. The first meeting attracted six enthusiastic residents who contributed many ideas and suggestions of activities and themes they would like to explore in the group. The group will reconvene in a month to pick up the conversation and look to nominate one or two residents to take on the Group Convenor role. The establishment of a Peer Support Group within a supported living environment is an exciting new step for the Power of Peers project.
The group is for the residents, and we bring people together onsite to provide opportunities for members to talk more about topics that are of interest to them like local theme parks, community activities and service like health or transport. We would like to acknowledge and thank the onsite staff for their help to promote the meeting and in supporting residents to attend.
