  • We are holding another Peer Connect Retreat and this time it’s in Parramatta, Sydney! Held from Friday 26 – Sunday 28 May 2023, this Retreat is your chance to get away and connect with other adults with neuromuscular conditions. Partners are also welcome!

    “Being surrounded by a group of people who understood and supported each other gave me the confidence I needed to get through. And they made me laugh and feel the happiest I’d felt in a long time. I forgot about my disability and just had fun, after all, laughter really is the best medicine.” – Marie, Peer Connect Retreat participant. Read all of Marie’s story from the Peer Connect Retreat here.

    Parramatta Parkroyal is conveniently located in the heart of Parramatta. Not far from the Eat Street, Westfield shopping centre and the Parramatta River. Historic Parramatta Park is a lovely place to explore, full of history and natural beauty.

    Peer Connect Dinner – We will be hosting a Peer Connect Dinner on the Friday night, so if you aren’t able to stay the entire weekend this is a great opportunity to connect with others over a lovely 3 course meal!

    The retreat is funded by MDNSW Peer Connect Program, and NDIS Core funding. The participant contribution fee is $100/pp or $150/couple. Or if attending the dinner only, it’s $30/pp.

    Unfortunately, this Peer Connect Retreat is full, but we are taking a waiting list and hope to hold a second retreat in October.

    To join the waiting list or submit an EOI for the October retreat, please contact Carolyn at or on 0408 472 510.
