Speak To A Peer About Your Arthritis!Speak to someone who has the same type of arthritis and is of a similar age as you
The Peer Support Service volunteers is a group of trained volunteers who have arthritis and are responsible for providing non-clinical one-on-one telephone peer support to New Zealanders living with arthritis, which includes advice and experience of living with arthritis.
How Does The Peer Support Service Work?
We provide training to volunteers who have arthritis so that they can become Peer Supporters and support newly diagnosed people with arthritis as well as those who have had arthritis for some time and need support from someone who understands.
“Peer Support helped me get through a difficult time, I found someone who actually understood me.”
