How can I speak with a Peer Support Volunteer?

Who is eligible for peer support?

We can provide peer support to women who:

  • are in Victoria
  • have had cancer
  • are at any stage: diagnosis, treatment, after treatment, or living with advanced/metastatic cancer.

Our services are confidential and free.

We can also arrange an interpreter for peer support in your own language.

Get in touch

By phone

Most of our peer support takes place by phone, so you can speak to a volunteer from wherever you are in Victoria.

You are welcome to contact us directly to arrange peer support or you can be referred by a health professional.

Request a call from a Peer Support Volunteer. If our phone is unattended, please leave a message and we will call back during our open hours.
