PEER program

Rich Text 1

Canteen’s three-day PEER program provides young people with an opportunity to connect, be supported and to support others through their experiences of cancer.  

PEER is held at different locations throughout Australia each year, and welcomes all young people aged 12-17 who’ve experienced cancer themselves or in their family.

Therapeutic sessions give young people the opportunity to explore the emotional impact of their cancer experience and learn new ways to cope. The program also provides opportunities for fun, connection with other young people and a break from the daily reality of cancer.


*PEER will probably not be run during 2022 due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. You can still connect with young people who get what dealing with cancer is like at some of our other events and programs as well as online through Canteen Connect.
