Peer to peer supportPeer support is where individuals who have lived experience of being connected to the LGBTQ community; they themselves identify, a family member, a friend or an ally who has some knowledge gained in life. The PFLAG Volunteers on this team provide support or resources to others who are dealing with similar issues. By listening empathetically, sharing their experiences and offering suggestions based on that experience, people with lived experience of these issues are uniquely able to support others. We do not provide professional counselling nor are our volunteers in the peer to peer team trained or qualified to be counselors.
We take the information you provided and try to match the closest peer we can that is available. We meet in a public space such as a coffee shop and try to pick a seat that could be more private. We meet up in a public space for your safety and ours. There are always two of us on the visit with you and you are welcome to bring someone along if that makes you more comfortable.
