Join a new peer support program: the Buddy Network

Would you like to do more to help other people? Are you a good listener? Do you want to make new connections in your community? Buddies are volunteers with disabilities living anywhere in Victoria. They support others who are going through difficult times by allowing them to feel heard and understood. Buddies are not advocates or counsellors, they are more like companions who listen to those they support with kindness and solidarity. Because no one in the disability community needs to feel alone. You will be supported every step of the way through training and ongoing professional development. You will also be invited to join the network’s online fortnightly peer support group.

Sign up if you are interested in becoming a Buddy, or if you need some peer support, or want to attend an information session to find out more.
