We are working with the Balit Narrum Northern Division Aboriginal Disability Network, and representatives from North East Melbourne’s many and varied cultural backgrounds, to help us recruit local people from the area’s diverse communities.

  • personal safety
  • cultural awareness
  • unconscious bias
