NDS is proud to launch Project ECHO - a critical research initiative that will identify gaps, priorities and opportunities in the sector, as well as expanding Tasmania’s success in securing national capacity building investment.

Project ECHO works to Engage, Connect, Help and Open opportunities for Tasmanian organisations to include all Tasmanians with disability in their services and in the broader community. It is the next step of inclusion and diversity which will integrate mainstream and community services across our great state.

We need the voices of service providers to be amplified in this research. Your advice will shape the priorities for capacity building investment across mainstream and community organisations in Tasmania

Get involved! We have ‘five asks’ for NDS members in Tasmania to help us make this project a success:

  1. Take the Project ECHO survey.
  2. Disseminate the survey to internal stakeholders.
  3. Disseminate the survey to external stakeholders – All views are important for this research!
  4. Invite us to participate in your events.
  5. Schedule us to present Project ECHO research findings.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes and is designed to gather the following information:

  • Your current understandings and the information you need
  • Your experiences and challenges
  • Ideas and priorities for support and investment

Project ECHO is listening - Please share you views and ideas! Thank you in advance for your involvement.
