The Ageing, Disability and Mental Health Collaborative Panel was established in 2014 to build the capacity of the ageing, disability and mental health sectors to:

  • Prepare for the transformational changes associated with Government reforms including the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the introduction of the Aged Care Gateway and related funding reforms.
  • Develop good practice in response to these reforms and for the future in relation to consumer led service delivery, develop new training approaches, share their experiences and collaborate on common challenges and opportunities.

The Ageing, Disability and Mental Health Collaborative Panel was initiated and is supported by the State Trustees Australia Foundation. It helps strategically guide the State Trustees Australia Foundation’s larger grants program to gain momentum in supporting vulnerable Victorians.

The Panel is chaired by Annie Hayward (General Manager – Policy, Strategy & Public Affairs, Carers Victoria) and includes representatives from:
