Peer support volunteers are cancer survivors and caregivers of cancer patients who are specially trained to provide emotional and coping support to individuals who are in similar situations. Peer Support is Wellspring’s primary individual support program. As a member, you will meet in private with a peer support volunteer where you will be invited to share your story, circumstances and to express any concerns you may have. Peer support volunteers also provide program navigation to help you select programming that is appropriate for your current needs, interest and time. As your needs change over time, the peer support volunteers will remain periodically in contact to ensure you are receiving the care you need.
Peer Support is available at all centres from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a drop-in basis.
If you would like to set up a time to speak or meet with a peer support volunteer, please call 416-480-4440 or simply click here to send an email to the centre.
Drop-In Program: This program requires no ongoing commitment and is especially helpful for those who are not feeling well, are in treatment or are coping with symptoms that make commitment difficult.
