‘Bring Together’ Peer to Peer Program
What we offer…
Mankurri-apinthi offers peer-to-peer group support aimed to improve people’s wellbeing, create larger support networks, improve knowledge, and enhance self-esteem and confidence. This program is run with the Australian Centre for Social Innovation.
We believe the sharing of culture, lived experience and knowledge happens organically when mob meet.
We’re a support network, run by community.
We empower peer volunteers and families to come together and make choices about what they want to learn and do.
Community Led Groups:
Each group has a minimum of 1 peer volunteer who is supported by KWY
Each group has up to 6 peers working towards goals that meet weekly
Volunteers lead group yarning as group members work out their goals and what they want out of their groups
Possible group themes could be anything from cooking, culture, relationships, problem solving, time management, budgeting, or anything the group chooses.
- The service is for families with children aged birth to 18 years
- At least one parent or child is Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
Have lived experience
Identify as Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander or are part of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander families
Mankurri-apinthi is seeking both peers and peer volunteers.
If you are interested in connecting with your community and supporting one another through journeying together, we are interested in having a yarn with you.
Our goal is to connect you into your community and find a group with other like-minded people.
