Aboriginal Development Officers (ADO’s) support CHSP and HACC-PYP staff and organisations to improve access to services for Aboriginal people through culturally responsive services. ADOs also support Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCO’s) to provide services in their communities. The ADO role includes:
- coordinating regular Loddon Mallee/Hume Regional Aboriginal Network meetings for CHSP and HACC-PYP Aboriginal service providers and facilitating communication between the network and state-wide Victorian Committee for Aboriginal Aged Care and Disability (VCAACD).
- supporting the development of partnerships between ACCOs and mainstream CHSP and HACC-PYP providers.
