Te Pou Aropā Takitoru - Peer Support Service ⏵

Peke Waihanga have established a volunteer Peer Support Service nationwide to provide support to our patients at all stages of their journey with support from Limbs 4 Life Australia and Amputees Federation of New Zealand Inc. The service provides informal support to those adapting to limb loss by matching them with trained supporters who have adapted to their own limb loss. 

To become a peer support volunteer or if you would like support from a peer support volunteer, please visit the Peer Support NZ website for registration forms and more information. 

 

NZ Kids with limb loss ⏵

Please answer the group entry questions upon requesting to join. This Group is open to parents and carers of children with limb loss/difference. This Group is designed to provide support, and allow families to make connections, share information and learn about beneficial resources. We encourage the sharing of information, personal stories and positive conversations. This Group is ‘closed’ to protect the privacy of all members.
