Peer Support

International Day of People with Disabilities

Each year on December 3rd, the International Day of People with Disabilities, we recognise that people who live with disabilities are among the most affected populations amid the COVID pandemic.

According to the United nations – One billion persons with some form of disability can benefit from assistive technologies that can facilitate their social, economic and political engagement, including their participation in decision-making processes that affect their lives and ambitions. Here’s to a more inclusive accessible world.

What’s a Peer?

A peer is any person going through like-minded circumstances to yours. Some of the ways we support one another are:

  • Listening to each other’s concerns
  • Sharing information with each other and with Technology for Living
  • Understanding everyone is unique
  • Respecting everyone’s opinions
  • Attending events to support each other socially and emotionally

We’re a diverse group of members, some of whom know what it’s like to live with a ventilator, transition from an institution to the community, and live with a disability.

As the Innovation Strategist at Technology for Living, Ean Price is suggesting: “If you have the opportunity to share your experiences with other people, please do so! It’s empowering for everyone involved.”
