Communities in Practice - Person Centred Approaches

Communities in Practice are local networks that meet on a regular basis that offer staff of non government organisations that deliver disability services the opportunity for further learning, and to apply what they've learned from the program to their work.  

Participation in these networks provides professional development opportunities and resources for middle and senior managers wanting to adapt their own approach to service planning, and in turn help frontline staff adapt their approach to service delivery, by providing a platform to share personal knowledge, information and experience, and to turn research into practice. 

Communities in Practice meetings are tailored to individual areas and organised locally.  For more information and meeting dates, contact your local Communities in Practice facilitator:
