The NDIS National Access Team has begun contacting people living in the North East Melbourne Area (NEMA) to gauge their eligibility to become NDIS participants. Telephone calls are being made directly to people with disability and their families. This follows a letter that was sent to prospective participants by the Department of Health and Human Services earlier this year, and is a key activity for the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to assist people to transition into the scheme.
This fact sheet provides information on the first stage of participant phasing arrangements in Victoria, specifically participants in the North East Melbourne Area and people on a waitlist for the Disability Support Register and Early Childhood Intervention Services.
Why should I care about my legal health?
Come and see the team from West Heidelberg Community Legal Service and get a free legal health check at our pop–up stall. There will be an opportunity to speak with a lawyer and get help to access the right services for you.
A legal health check is a conversation starter to help people identify their legal problems and get help.

The Women of West Heidelberg International Women's Day event has become an annual event for Banyule Community Health. This year's focus is 'How can we make a fairer society for women?' and includes presentations from Key Speaker - Nicola Roxon (former Federal Health Minister & Attorney General).
While the world was celebrating a global pledge to keep temperature rises below two degrees Celsius on the weekend, an almost equally significant global commitment went largely unnoticed.
At an international conference to end violence against women held in Istanbul, representatives from more than 40 countries made action-oriented pledges to create a safer world for women.
