The role of a peer group facilitator is to support and facilitate regular PAG’s, most likely meeting monthly. Peer groups will be delivered within a co-facilitation model, so facilitators will work within a team of two or three per group. This position would suit colleagues or friends who were interested in facilitating together.
Some of the benefits peer group members gain from attending the PAG’s include, learning and building on strong self-advocacy skills, and being effectively prepared for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Group members gain the confidence to have a greater level of choice and control over their lives, whilst building strong relationships and natural supports. PAG members gain greater opportunities for engagement in recreation, work and the wider life of the community.
