Nicoletta Burrows Leads Our New Peer Support Project

June 18, 2024

Recognising the pivotal role of peers in addressing systemic stigma and discrimination, LiverWELL has recently welcomed a peer worker to our team!  We are actively expanding this role to launch an innovative peer support project tailored for individuals affected by viral hepatitis.

Nicoletta Burrows, our new project worker, brings extensive experience in community development and advocacy from her involvement with peer-led organisations supporting sex workers and drug users in Australia and internationally. In addition to providing direct peer support to help community members access viral hepatitis services (including testing, care, and treatment), our initiative aims to empower individuals affected by viral hepatitis to articulate their experiences and identify their healthcare needs.

Currently, the peer project is forging relationships with neighbouring community organisations and health initiatives to explore potential opportunities for co-location, collaborative outreach, and innovative community engagement strategies.

For more information about this project or to refer service users to our peer support initiative, please contact Nicoletta directly at (mobile) 0493 538 881 or via email at nicoletta@liverwell.org.au.

We look forward to collaborating with you to strengthen our community’s support network and enhance healthcare access for those impacted by viral hepatitis.

We are here to answer your queries and support you. Call or chat with us online.
