Value of friendship, support for men at heart of peer group

Last updated:

Whether you’re looking for parenting education, building trust in relationships, finding friends or a social outing – IMPACT Community Services’ Men’s Peer Support Group is welcoming to all men.

This Positive Start Parenting program puts support and friendship for local men and fathers at the forefront of a non-judgmental event held fortnightly on a Friday morning from 9.30am-11.30am.

IMPACT employee and father Simon Peters is one of the male role models for the group and is excited to see how the program can develop.

With an understanding of the various stresses involved with the expectations of being a dad, raising children, maintaining adult relationships and finding friends, Simon said this group is definitely something he would have liked to have attended.

Simon said he was really looking forward to the Men’s Peer Support Group sessions as they were not only intended to be educational but relaxing and social too.

This is the kind of group with common ground that Simon said people could benefit from, feel seen and understood.

The group is also looking to host guest speakers to discuss matters like finance, health and other areas of interest to best benefit the attendees.

The next Men’s Peer Support Group session will be held on November 26 at Rob’s Shed based at IMPACT Community Services headquarters at 108 Bargara Rd, Bundaberg East.

Simon said there would be hands on activities in the workshop and morning tea available.

He hopes to see men from across the region attend the fortnightly sessions and help grow the program.

You don’t have to have accessed IMPACT’s Positive Start Parenting program to attend the Men’s Peer Support Group.

The venue for future session may change, so it’s best to call ahead on 0429 618 407 to get all the event details.
