WB Merger 01

At the 2016 IASSIDD Conference we presented research that considered our work at an individual, organisational, community and population level.

 

Community Development

Grow and develop a diverse base from which we can achieve improved policy and program design to meet the requirements of people with disability, older people, families and carers.

Method: Demographic research in the Western Region of Melbourne and consultation with existing annecto clients.

iassid Community Development Poster Summary

Given the cultural diversity and rapid predicted growth of the Western Region how can we create more inclusive communities?

How do we cater for an ageing population?
