Peer Support

Peer counseling, or fellowship, means non-professional counseling. It allows people with similar backgrounds and disabilities to help each other. The aim of peer counseling is to motivate people to believe in themselves, to help them make their own independent decisions and to help liberate them from various social pressures.

Promoting and conducting peer support sessions is one of the primary activities of CIL. Sessions take place in the CIL office and at peoples homes. Anything can be discussed including social or family issues, home or public accessibility issues, financial issues or general well being issues.
