Western Cross-Sector Community of Practice


HealthWest 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 Community of Practice brings together people from the health, community, aged care and disability sectors to collaboratively identify and respond to the emerging challenges and opportunities arising from the NDIS, Aged Care and Mental Health reforms. We aim to exchange good practice to achieve better consumer-directed-care outcomes.

Community of Practice Forums

Our next forum will be a training session on Integrating the principles of Consumer Control and Choice into organisational service design and delivery. The session is co-designed and co-facilitated by representatives from Mental Health Victoria and Australian Federation of Disability Organisations.

  • When: Monday 12th November 2018, 9:30am – 12:30pm
  • Where: Ikon Park (Princes Park), North Carlton
