This course is open to adults who have an interest in the community and disability sector. This can lead to pathways to employment and is also suitable for those who are already involved in the sector to build on existing skills. It will be delivered through campus face-to-face learning and online self-paced learning over a period of 12 months and will include a practical placement.

NDIS Readiness Workshops for Families
Are you unsure about the upcoming National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
Do you need some assistance collating the information for your first planning meeting?
To help you understand the NDIS changes and prepare for you NDIS planning meeting, Inclusion Melbourne, with support of State Trustee’s has developed a workshop series to support you transition to the NDIS.
Each fortnight the workshops will provide you with information, guidance to set goals, helpful tips, and assist you to complete all the necessary paperwork for the planning meeting. In addition to the workshops you will have the change to meet with other families that we support in your local area.
Workshop one – what is the NDIS?
Workshop two – planning for the plan
Workshop three – getting the most out of your plan
Workshop four – what next?
It is recommended that you attend all four workshops to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting.
We feel grateful to be given the opportunity to provide a submission to the State Government for the development of the State Disability Plan 2017-2020. Providing strong systems and access to advocacy is at the top of our list. Read our recent submission here.

Flyer Induction Training Feb to June 2016
Please note that these trainings are not open to the public.
Circles of Support aim to formalise informal networks to provide valuable and authentic support to a person with a disability
Circles of Support are beneficial because they support the person with a disability over the long term, act as a mechanism that promotes communal responsibility, and support families, carers and advocates. In 2015, Inclusion Melbourne facilitated a trial program, assisting 3 people to build and maintain their own Circles of Support. The success of the program has resulted in Inclusion Melbourne being selected by the National Disability Service (NDS) to contribute to the Community Inclusion Initiative for 2015. The NDS is working with Inclusion Melbourne to expand the Circle of Support program and understand how Circles of Support can contribute to support people with a disability within the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Have a look at our Inclusion Designlab website for more information.
We’re excited to invite you to our Circles of Support Training, which will commence in March 2016. For more information, see the attached invite for details…
