NDIS/disability consumer support
ECCV is currently coordinating the Transition Support Package project.
The Transition Support Package (TSP) project is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
The TSP project aims to support culturally and linguistically diverse people with a disability, their families and carers to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
ECCV is working with other funded consumer agencies, the NDIA and NDIS partners to ensure that culturally and linguistically diverse consumers are included in their transition activities.
As NDIS transition progresses it is important that we respond to the changing needs of people with disability, families, carers and service providers, with a focus on additional support for consumers in culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
Resource – NDIS Provider Guide
The NDIS Provider Guide has been developed to assist existing and aspiring culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) NDIS providers in their understanding of NDIS providership.
In 2020, ECCV engaged Global Consulting Group (GCG) in response to the challenges raised by the member organisations regarding delivery and access to NDIS services. The NDIS structure has disrupted the traditional block-funding model in the disability sector and forced changes to the way that providers operate. With a aim to empower multicultural communities, the Guide takes the reader through the NDIS policy and practice journey that is essential for every existing and aspiring NDIS service provider to manage.

We are proud to recognise the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, as the first Australians, cultural leaders and traditional custodians of the land from which we advocate for ethnic community groups. We pay our respects to their elders, past & present.
