Developed by the Eastern Regional Coordinators Group the aim of this resource is to assist workers across Inner- and Outer- Eastern Melbourne to navigate the various health and community support sectors, for the benefit of the people (consumers and carers/families) that they work with.
The guide will also assist providers to understand key entry points to the various service sectors.
The resource is divided into sector specific sections and contains information to assist staff to know the eligibility criteria, catchments, and suitable entry points. This information aims to support appropriate referrals for people. It also includes some useful links and demystifies acronyms and terms for each sector.

There is also an annual forum that supports this resource - Professionsal Navigating the East. Read More
