The peer movement is front and centre of what we do at CDAH and we continue to build that movement in the Hunter region. CDAH works with a range of peer groups including, Hunter Deafblind Group, The Hive and Women First. New peer groups are continuing to emerge and have a life of their own in our region, with peers coming together around areas such as creative arts, health and diverse experiences of living with disability. CDAH works to foster and encourage this growth.
CDAH also continues to offer a range of innovative opportunities to connect peers and share the wisdom that comes from living the experience of disability. This includes the ongoing success of our Planning Cafes, where peers share stories, advice and experiences on topics such as what quality safeguards look like for people with disability and advice around the upcoming Royal Commission into Abuse and Neglect of people with disability.
