Peer or mutual support is a strong and important aspect of living with a vestibular condition. The word “peer” which means ‘one of equals’ is important. It differentiates this type of support from other rehabilitation services provided by professional health-based organisations. Peers are not health professionals or medical experts. They are volunteers who have been diagnosed with the same or a similar condition or illness and who are willing to share their time and experiences to offer hope, encouragement and a positive role model to others, especially the newly diagnosed.
Whirled Foundation peer support groups are for anyone living with a vestibular condition, including their family members, friends and carers. Whirled Foundation peer support meetings provide a great opportunity to learn more about your vestibular condition while getting to know others who have first-hand experience of living with the condition. The groups offer information, social connection, hope and support.
Becoming a Peer Support Group Leader can be both a challenging and rewarding experience. Whirled Foundation offers information and administrative support for Peer Support Group Leaders and can link Leaders together to share knowledge and experience.
It’s easy. Contact our office to express your interest in commencing a group. Our staff will guide you through the process, assist in identifying members in your area and help you get your group started. Please contact our office on 1300 368 818.
