Summary:

Peer support is when people share and receive practical information, experiences, emotional support with someone else on a similar journey. 

Peer support options are generally free, person centred and aimed at helping people cope with a variety of health and social conditions.

While the TAC recognises that peer support programs can be a valuable support for our clients and encourages clients to participate, any costs related to a peer support program are payable by the client, including but not restricted to, attendance, access and transport. 

Principles of peer support as outlined by the Department of Human Services are generally accepted as a guideline for things for users to look for when sourcing a peer support.
