who icon-01.jpg

CONNECT Volunteers are fellow pilots who offer support in an informal and secure way. Peer support is vital as it is those that travel the similar journey by day, by week, by year, who are most likely to empathise, understand and relate to the challenges faced by others. Peer Support Volunteers are not counsellors or psychologists, but have access a range of resources to assist.

THE CONNECT TEAM
