Hey, I’m Caroline. I am really excited to be the senior peer mentor for the Peer2Peer training program.
I have two daughters who are in high school – one has a passion for the Paralympic sport of boccia; the other is passionate about acting. They are both really good at what they do and both want to move out of home in 6 years time. I see it as my role as a mum to make sure they have all the skills they need to be able to do that successfully.
I have supported people with disability and their families for a long time and know there is always more than one pathway to reach a goal.
In my mentoring I can offer skills to:
support people through the mentoring process.
help break down a goal into smaller chunks.
build people’s confidence in the skills that they are learning or already have.
I am really looking forward to going to Norfolk Island for a holiday with my friends later this year.
