The Victoria Disability Resource Centre (VDRC) is looking to start a new chapter in how we offer peer support.

Our Goal

The VDRC’s goal is to provide and promote opportunities for people with disabilities to share information, ideas, life experiences and skills. We believe that it is through the context of a supportive peer environment that individuals can gain the skills and self-confidence needed to overcome barriers and learn to better manage personal and community resources.

What’s Happening Now

Current peer groups at the VDRC are:

Coffee Social
Meets the fourth Friday of each month from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
