Accessing your local community: the Metro Access initiative
Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre Southern Region
The Community Building Program supports communities to include people with a disability in local life. It is funded by the Department of Human Services and is a core feature of the Victorian State Disability Plan 2002-2012.
The Program is implemented in partnership with local communities, with MetroAccess workers based in each council across metro Melbourne.
MetroAccess uses a community development approach to increase opportunities for people with a disability to participate in local life.
For more information, including a list of MetroAccess workers in the southern region, please read the attached flyer.
