Expression of Interest: Introduction to Facilitation for Peer Support

The cover of the facilitation course flyer

A practical, applied course for people who want to learn how to facilitate peer networks and groups.

CRU believes that people with disabilities and their families’ experiences and knowledge are valuable, and that linking people with similar values and goals can mean they learn from each other and support each other to remain hopeful and stay on track.

The Introduction to Facilitation for Peer Support course is an opportunity to develop the skills to facilitate conversations between people with shared experiences and values and to support groups of people to learn from and with each other.  It is offered to support the development of peer networks that benefit people with disability.
