The Parliamentary Secretary for Families and Community Services, Andrea Coote MLC, launched a new resource titled "Peer Support".
This is a guide to how people with a disability and carers can share what they know about self-directing their supports. It acknowledges the value of the collective wisdom that people with a disability and their supporters hold and the benefits of people sharing that wisdom and personal experience with each other.
The guide reflects the experiences and opinions of this diverse group of people.
There are limited number of printed copies to distribute, if there are particular organisations or people who you think could benefit from this guide, please contact Eilis Hughes on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will organise for copies to be sent.
