Find a Mentor - Finding Your Way

Welcome to Finding Your Way!


Find a Mentor

Find Your Way to:
• Mentors with lived experience who have or are caring for a family member with disability
• Mentors with expertise in community disability knowledge
• Skilled and trusted adviser and/or trainers.
• Mentors willing to offer help and advice over a period of time.
Research demonstrates the value of peer mentoring and how mentoring can make a significant difference to those receiving mentoring support as well as to the community at large. You may need a peer mentor to talk to your community group or your staff.
Parent peer mentors across Tasmania have been involved in raising awareness and
lobbying for important services supports and community changes as well as establishing new services and supports throughout history.
If you would like to contact a peer mentor registered with Finding Your Way please call the ACD Freecall number on 1800 244 742 for more details.
