PEER2PEER provides people with disability with mentors to support them in engaging in community and achieving their goals.

About:

PEER2PEER provides people with disability with mentors to support them in engaging in community and achieving their goals.

Be supported to build confidence, independent living skills or to gain employment while having fun and sharing experiences with a mate!

You could be supported to do anything from attending community events and activities, to playing sport, going shopping, to the cinemas or to a cafe, joining clubs, taking up hobbies like music, cooking, pilates, yoga, gaming, engaging in academic learning or volunteering.

Best of all, do all of this while developing a friendship and a connection with someone who you can trust, talk to and get advice from.

Importantly, you get to help in identifying and choosing your mentor(s).

Who is PEER2PEER for?

PEER2PEER is for anyone aged 16+ who has autism or an intellectual disability.

Cost:

The cost of PEER2PEER is aligned to the NDIS price guide and can be completely paid for out of a range of NDIS funding types.

Where is it available?

Currently a pilot program, PEER2PEER is available to people living in and around Southern Metro Adelaide. 

Mentors Wanted - Become a Paid Mentor:

As a mentor you will support a person with disability to build confidence, independent living skills or to gain employment while having fun and sharing experiences.

You can be a person with or without disability and Mentor Development Sessions will be offered to those wishing to take on a mentoring role for the first time.

Peer mentors are matched with young people and adults who are aspiring to greater independence through gaining confidence and skills to participate in community life.

Once you have been chosen by one of our clients as their peer mentor and meet our employment requirements you will be offered a position.

Payment and Qualifications for Mentoring:

All positions will be casual, part-time positions and will be paid at the Level 2 Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Award.

Our employment requirements include DHS Disability Employment Services Screening and a First Aid Certificate and some additional requirements if you will be working with young people under 18 years.

Training:

Free, paid training will be provided to mentors prior to taking part in the program.

The first training sessions will occur during April 2021 with the program starting in May 2021.
