Consumer representative and peer worker community of practice
About the community of practice
There is a lot of research that supports the value of people working from a space of using their lived experience, and also in involving consumer representatives in all areas across the AOD sector. Improvement in health and wellbeing outcomes and assisting better access and engagement in services and treatment are some of the many benefits brought about by this practice.
NADA facilitates a regular community of practice to provide a supportive peer based space where people can share their experiences of working as a consumer representative or peer worker in the non government AOD sector and hear about what is happening in the consumer rep and peer worker spaces.
The community of practice is held online, every two months. The day and time will change for each meeting to allow more people a chance to attend.
