Western Cross-Sector Community of Practice


Health West Partnership and Inner North West PCP (INWPCP) have partnered with the National Disability Service (NDS) to bring you the Western Melbourne Cross-Sector Community of Practice. The purpose is to bring together different sectors to collaborate and exchange good practice to achieve better consumer-directed care outcomes. Using a thematic approach, the network aims to support service providers to successfully navigate multiple service reforms.


The next Forum will focus on Workforce Training and Education and take place on Tuesday 20th March 2018 at 9:30am – 12:30pm.
