Peer Support

Our mission is to help as many people as possible. We work together to find solutions do fun things and get involved in the community. People who’ve experienced mental illness, poor health, disability or difficult times still have tons to give the world.

If you're hungry we'll provide you with a meal.

If you're lonely we'll come and visit you.

If you need help finding work, we'll help you prepare your CV."

If you need educational support we provide creative writing, mass lessons and more.

If you use drugs or alcohol we have a peer supported addiction group. We also run Wellness Recovery Action Planning Sessions.

If you need help with benefits and social welfare advice we can help you.

If you struggle to make appointments peer supporters can help you get there.

We are a holistic community service that want to help as many people as possible.

Just having someone who's not a close friend or family member to talk to can make all the difference.

There's no referral policy, not need to be referred and no criteria to attend. You can simply walk in and access our services on the same day.
