No one is potentially in a better position to understand about living life with an amputation or supporting a person with limb loss/difference than someone who has been there. An experienced, well-trained peer can offer encouragement and information from a place, and at a pace, that an individual in this circumstance can better absorb.
We welcomed a number of new Certified Peer Visitors (CPV) and CPV Trainers in 2019, and we’re looking to grow the ranks in 2020!
We are currently booking our 2020 CPV Training Schedule and we’re ready to plan even more.
