Mankurri-apinthi
‘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
