NDIS Transition projects
ECCV is currently coordinating the TSP project which is funded until June 2020 by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
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 particular focus for additional support for consumers in culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
The TSP aims to support culturally and linguistically diverse people with a disability and their families and carers to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as it becomes available across Victoria until June 2019.
ECCV is working with other funded consumer agencies, the NDIA and Local Area Coordinating partners to ensure that culturally and linguistically diverse consumers are included in their transition activities.
ECCV is also developing a community engagement strategy to target vulnerable communities and provide links to accessing the NDIS.

Resource: Self-Advocacy and Diversity: A model for CALD inclusion
“It is estimated that people from non-English speaking background with disability comprise 1 in 20 Australians, or approximately 1 million people.”
Ethnic Community Council of Victoria and Diversity and Disability (DnD), a self-advocacy program delivered at the Migrant Resource Centre North West Region (MRCNW) in St Albans, have worked in partnership with the Ethnic Council of Shepparton and Districts (ECSD) to develop a model to support the growth of self-advocacy among of people with disability from CALD backgrounds, in two communities in Victoria, one metropolitan and one regional. We’re pleased to present to you this model.
