Creative Cross-sector Collaborations - Making it work for the client, which will be held on Tues, 26 August 2014, is a one-day Conference, organised by the Bouverie Centre, sponsored by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation and supported by the Victorian Department of Health.
Services are facing a range of challenges as part of the sector reform process in Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs and Gambler’s Help. One challenge is the imperative for organisations to work collaboratively to provide accessible streamlined client pathways and shared client care, particularly to individuals and families with multiple needs. However, collaboration is not simple!
The Conference will showcase good practice examples and explore the challenges of the collaborative work across a range of themes common to all service sectors. It will provide opportunities to build relationships and increase awareness of the issues affecting Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs, Gambling and Child and Family Service sectors. A set of cross-sector Practice Guidelines have been developed which reflect the experience of Gambler’s Help services and these will be launched at the Conference. The ideas and examples in this document will provide a useful framework across sectors for sustained collaborative practice into the future.
