Peer Mentoring

Advocacy

Our Peer Mentoring matches disabled people in a one to one relationship to provide guidance for other disabled people. Through this special relationship, peer mentors provide advice and support and serve as role models for disabled people who need help. Challenges facing those being mentored include the problems of newly acquired impairments, family problems or tension, direct payments, using personal assistance, employment and volunteering. A peer mentor can also simply be someone to talk to.

Peer Mentors provide positive influences for disabled people who may need a little extra attention or who don't have a good support system available to them. For example, a disabled person who has experienced neglect or abuse or who simply feels lonely or uncomfortable in large group situations may especially benefit from the support, attention and kindness of a Peer Mentor along with other supports.
