There are two sessions:

Session 1: 9.30am – 12.30pm: Engaging with CALD Communities – a professional development session for Disability Service Providers

Session 2: 12.30pm – 2.30pm: Building networks to support people with a disability from CALD communities
This event is designed for disability service providers and ethnic and multicultural organisations in the East to share knowledge about their services, build networks and establish partnerships to ensure greater choice and control for CALD NDIS participants. It will also be an opportunity:

  • For disability service providers to strengthen engagement with CALD communities through partnerships
  • For ethnic agencies to build connections with disability and mainstream service providers.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
