The Stand by Me project began in 2021 and aims to build the capacity of people with intellectual disability and their family members to “stand by and then stand behind their adult family member with intellectual disability”. The focus of this project is to deliver peer groups that cover topics that are chosen by the peer groups and are of interest and relevance. In addition, we provide workshop opportunities to learn new skills and information.
This project employs five people with intellectual disabilities and is active in Gladstone, Hervey Bay, Sunshine Coast, Redcliffe and Brisbane. For more information email Emma@p2pqld.org.au
