Peer networks run by you, for you.

Welcome to the Peer-to-Peer Networks WA website, where we provide practical information about peer networks in Western Australia for the disabled community.

When you hear the words Peer Network or Peer Network Facilitator this means a group or person with lived experience of disability, who provide support to each other because of similar experiences or circumstances.

Peer support can help you feel more confident, knowledgeable, capable, and less isolated.

Peer-to-Peer Networks WA has several trained Peer Network Facilitators who work individually with people or groups, as well as facilitate workshops and Peer Network Café’s.
