Victorian Network Events

About the Victorian Network Events

Open to all disability service providers, network meetings are a forum for ideas, a great source of information and an opportunity to network with others that have similar focus and interests. Led by an expert in the subject and supported by NDS staff, network meetings are specific to a range of disability policy areas and meet regularly to discuss issues, policies and sector development. 

Providing both a Victorian and national focus, these Networks complement the NDS National Communities of Practice and are short one hour meetings focussing on networking and sharing good practice. These networks are coordinated by NDS Victoria, however, all NDS members and providers across Australia are welcome to attend.
