Rural and Remote Representation Required for the Embracing Change Project Advisory Group


The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Quality and Safeguards Commission has provided funding under the NDIS Provider Program to the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) to deliver the project ‘Embracing Change: Applying the Practice Standards in Psychosocial Disability Services’.

The project is aiming to create greater national awareness and understanding of the Quality and Safety Commission’s Practice Standards and Quality Indicators as they apply to the provision of psychosocial support services. It also aims to support providers to reflect on and improve their service delivery practices that align with the Standards.

The project will involve the delivery of ten interactive and informative webinars and one forum over the next two years.

MHCC is seeking a representative from a rural or remote community to be on the project Advisory Group. This person would be someone who lives and/or works in a rural or remote community. MHCC is especially interested in getting representation from states outside of NSW.

We are wanting to hear from and involve organisations that provide services/supports to people living with, or at risk to develop, psychosocial disability and their supporters. This will be a great opportunity to be involved in a shared learning experience and to support the transition of services to the new requirements.

MHCC e welcome applications from:

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in psychosocial support services and the NDIS. MHCC is also interested in representation from:

The Advisory Group will meet via teleconference on ten occasions throughout the project with the first meeting arranged for October 2019. The remaining meetings scheduled as follows:

Consumer and carer representatives may be eligible to paid for their participation.
