Peer and Family Support in Illawarra
Peer & Family Support in Illawarra
Our peer support program in the Illawarra comprises both community-based phone calls post discharge, and also a regular presence at the Port Kembla Spinal Outpatients clinic. Branka, our peer support coordinator in the Illawarra, brings over 30 years of lived experience of spinal cord injury, having raised a child and had a successful sporting and professional career post her injury.
