Peer Support in a cafe

We match 1:1 or groups of people wanting a little peer support, networking and sharing experiences to learn from each other. 

Peer support is based on a mentoring concept, where a person with a disability provides information, assistance, support, and/or serves as a role model for another person.  Support groups are available.
