Peer Support


We encourage youths to seek peer support through our facebook page via the wall or private chat. But if you wish to speak to someone via the phone, we have a team of peer supporters who are available to talk to you.  Our team members have a range of eye conditions and are based throughout the country. They are able to speak from firsthand experience about the day-to-day reality of living with a visual impairment, and offer ideas for making daily tasks easier to cope with and where to find further information on a range of topics.

Ring 0800 233 833 to speak to our Peer Support Officer Petronella Spicer or email:
