Unconditional support is similar to unconditional love. We love our kids and as they grow and become young adults, then adults we often don’t agree with some of their decisions but our love is steadfast.

Peer Support is similar, it doesn’t matter about our background, everyone is equal around the table and we are all there to provide our support to each other.

How often when meeting someone for the first time, a protocol of talking about things of general interest takes place. The conversation then graduates into other areas of mutual interest and a comfort zone begins to be established. It is at that point a more personal conversation begins. Peer Support provides a safe zone, an area where no one is judgemental as we have all been there to varying degrees.

Peer Support derives its power from the group.
