Find a peer network
Joining a Peer Support Network is a great way to build connections with people living with disability, and sometimes family members of people living with disability.
Joining a network will give you access to a support group of people you can talk to about things that are important to you, and who you can share information with and learn from.
You can also work together with your network to advocate for things that are important to you.
Networks are free to join.
They come in all shapes and sizes. There is no one-size-fits-all model.
You can join a network that's close to where you live, one with people who live with similar disability, one with people who share a specific interest or identity, or a network that only meets on the internet.
The Peer Support Networks are managed by the Disability Support Organisations.
