                         Background


The Wallan Partnership Project is a collaboration of service
providers with an interest in improving access to services for
people with disabilities residing in the Mitchell South area.
The service providers engaged in the project include:

-   Mitchell Community Health Services
-   Mitchell Shire Council
-   Department of Human Services
-   GV Centre Disability Services
-   FamilyCare
-   Goulburn Options
-   Regional Information and Advocacy Council
-   Berry Street

The Wallan Partnership Project is an initiative which was
funded through the DHS Innovations grants (2006), which
are in line with the State Disability Plan (2002-2012). The
main aim of the Wallan Partnership Project was to develop a
model for a co-ordinated approach to service delivery for
people with disabilities in the Wallan area, part of which was
the research and development of this guide.

                        Introduction

The Mitchell South Community Services guide was developed
to assist people with disabilities within the Mitchell South
area to identify the services operating in Wallan and to assist
with increasing community participation.

The information contained in this guide has been obtained
directly from the organisations involved or through their
public website material. The information contained was
correct at time of printing; however The Wallan Partnership
Project is not responsible for the validity of any out of date
material supplied.




                                                                  2
                    Where to from here?

This guide is useful tool for linking yourself with services
within the Mitchell South area. You can contact any of the
services directly, however if you are with a service and wish
for them to contact an organisation on your behalf, that’s
okay too.


Are you currently accessing any DHS funded programs?

Yes – Your service provider will be in the process of
completing your person centred plan with you, your family
and other services that you are involved with. The Mitchell
South Community Services Guide can assist you in
developing your plan, through helping you locate
organisations that can assist you to reach your goals, or that
meet your interests. You need to have a good think about
what you want to do in the near future and make sure that
these things are written into your plan, to help you reach
your goals.

No – If you would like to access DHS programs, you need to
contact DHS Hume Region Access & Response Team on:
1300 650 152. They will organise an assessment for you,
which will determine which service best suits your current
circumstances. This guide can assist you in finding services &
community groups which interest you and can be written into
your person centred plan with your service provider.
