"A journey of discovery where an individual leads their own unique process of moving forwards"

Peer Support

Peer Support ServicesComcare’s Peer Support Service supports people, through shared experience, to make sense of what is happening for them and how they want to move forward. A Peer Supporter can meet regularly with a person face to face or support can be given over the phone, which means we’re able to offer peer support services all across Christchurch and Canterbury.

Our Peer Support services are based on the internationally recognised Principles of Intentional Peer Support, summarised as Relational, Learning Focused and Purposeful.
