Aged & Disability Services

About the SIG

The objective of this SIG is to network, discuss government priorities and provide a forum for information exchange and professional development. Many interesting speakers provide valuable information on a variety of aged care and disability issues.

The SIG, in conjunction with the Assessment Officers SIG, hosts the Aged & Disability Services Seminar in October each year.

This network provides an opportunity for officers involved in all areas relating to aged and disability services who work for Councils in interface or designated high growth areas to meet and network. The meetings are held from 1-2pm before the SIG meeting.

Who Should Attend

Upcoming Meetings

Date: To be advised


Aged & Disability Services SIG Convenor, Leanne Dalla-Vecchia, Unit Manager - Assessment Services, Moreland City Council

Aged and Disability are undergoing major reforms and I feel these SIG meetings are a great opportunity for us to share experiences, learn from others outside of our own regional meetings. The SIG enables us to meet our colleagues in other regions and enables both metro and rural to come together. My commitment to the importance of these meetings motivated me to become a Convenor of Aged & Disability. I have only attended a couple of meetings previously due to other commitments, but enjoyed meeting others and sharing experiences. What I hope to achieve in the next 12 months is for all members to have a space to share and learn from each other and an avenue for members to keep informed and updated of what is happening in the areas of aged and disability.
