With the generous funding of the FCC (Farmer Credit Canada), CFWDR has completed an information manual for their peer-support counsellors. This 62-page manual outlines and itemizes conditions by which peer-support counselling is delivered by our volunteers. This includes training, supervision and evaluation of peer-support counsellors. The manual provided examples on various key skills for peer-support counsellors within CFWDR. Copies are available in French and English.
