Training for Peers

At CDAH, we believe in the power of peer support – we bring people with disability together to share information, learn from each other, work on issues that matter and build a movement for action. Peer training at CDAH is for people with disability to gain skills to create change!

Training Opportunities

We are proud to be partnering with Diversity and Disability Alliance over 3 years on an ILC-funded project called the NSW Peer Learning Hub to support people with disability to build leadership skills and connect with their community through peer support training and resources.  We are running three types of training over the next 3 years to strengthen the power of peer support in our communities.
