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 will review current good practice approaches to implementing peer support networks in the Australian disability sector, and undertake an international research and literature review on best practice delivery of peer support programs. The project will develop and evaluate a suite of resources and training materials designed for organisations providing peer support programs, and also aims to develop good practice guidelines on implementing peer support programs to inform investment in peer support programs and networks in the future.
