The Eastern Regional Coordinators group was founded by the Department of Health and Human Services (now known as the Department of Families Fairness and Housing) in 2014 with the following aims:
- To bring together the area coordinators whose role it is to promote and facilitate service coordination across the region.
- To reduce duplication of effort in providing navigation tools for the various sectors when the cohorts accessing services are largely similar.
- To support integration across sectors with workforce development, role modelling, promoting collaborative practice and training.
- To share relevant data and information across health and community service sectors.
- To seek opportunities to strengthen partnerships, links, responses and referral protocols.
Membership of the Eastern Regional Coordinators Group represents the following sectors: Homelessness; Family Violence; Family Services; Mental Health; Alcohol & Other Drugs; Children, Youth and Families; FaPMI; Aboriginal services; NDIS.
The coordination function of this group currently rests with the Eastern Mental Health Service Coordination Alliance coordinator, Bronwyn Williams. Correspondence regarding this group can be made to: Bronwyn.firstname.lastname@example.org
The Eastern Regional Coordinators acknowledge the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we are located and where we conduct our business. We pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past and present. We are committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.
