This project, led by researchers from the Australia and New Zealand School of Government, aims to build the organisational capacity of disability support organisations (DSOs) to provide peer support. It reviews current good practice approaches to implementing peer support networks in the Australian disability sector, and undertakes an international research and literature review on best practice delivery of peer support programs. The project develops and evaluates a suite of resources and training materials designed for organisations providing peer support programs, and develops good practice guidelines on implementing peer support programs to inform investment in peer support programs and networks in the future.
