I encourage you to join us at midday on 11 October at NAB Arena in Melbourne for our Annual Public Forum – “From Hospital to Home”. Health professionals, disability professionals and people with lived experience will gather to discuss how to achieve the best possible outcomes for people with complex needs, as they head from hospital to home.
In other news, we’ve written a useful guide on how to navigate your way through your search for mainstream housing. “Mainstream Housing Options”
will tell you everything you need to know when starting your search for appropriate housing.
