The Counterpart Year in Review 2020–2021 was launched at the Women's Health Victoria Annual General Meeting on 25 October 2021.
The Year in Review shares our achievements over the past year. We have continued to connect, support and inform women affected by breast or a gynaecological cancer across Victoria. Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, we operated the Counterpart Resource Centre remotely for much of the year, with Peer Support Volunteers making calls from their own homes. We also expanded our program of online events to ensure that women could continue to access support and information, even throughout lockdowns.
We also include women's stories to show some of the ways women affected by cancer benefit from Counterpart's programs, highlight our partnerships with health professionals and share volunteer experiences.
You can also read about Counterpart's work, along with the work of other Women's Health Victoria programs and services in the Women's Health Victoria Annual Report 2020-2021 (link to whv.org.au).
