Provincial Community Peer Support Volunteer Program
A Peer Support Volunteer is a  senior interested in helping other seniors.

What do Peer Support Volunteers do?
  • Peer Support Volunteers provide to other seniors information about available services and resources
  • Peer Support Volunteers use their own lifetime experiences as well as information from the Seniors Resource Centre
  • Peer Support Volunteers may assist seniors to obtain needed services

Why is the program needed?

  • Often seniors are unaware of services and resources available to them and so not know where to go for help.

  • Many seniors prefer to obtain information informally from people they know.
