Peer support

Strength through peer activities of organisations

When people suffering from the same disease get together, they share a sense of togetherness. Peer groups offer the best possible support. 

Associations provide their members with various group activities, lectures, trips, travel, festivities, and cultural activities. 

Peer support

RMD peer support volunteers act as the first contact and aid for people who have recently been diagnosed with RMDs. These trained volunteers listen, offer hints on how to live with a disease, and guide people to peer activities of RMD organisations. If needed, they direct people further to contact appropriate social and health care professionals.
