Counterpart: Connecting, Supporting, and Informing

Counterpart’s unique model connects, supports, and informs women living with breast or a gynaecological cancer to live well, whatever that means to them. Trained Peer Support Volunteers with a lived experience of cancer provide understanding and a listening ear, as well as emotional and practical support. Our peer support is supplemented by a range of information resources and well being sessions with qualified health professionals that complement the medical system and other cancer support services.
