MAP (Multicultural Access Project) Network
The Multicultural Access Project (MAP) is funded by Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) through the Home and Community Care (HACC) program. The aim of the project is to improve access for people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities to HACC services. There is a statewide MAP coordinator and regional MAP coordinators throughout Greater Sydney and the Central Coast and Hunter (download the 'MAP Network Contact List' document below for a list of MAP contacts). Each MAP coordinator’s role includes identifying and developing solutions to enhance access to HACC services and service outcomes for people from diverse cultural backgrounds, informing, supporting and resourcing HACC services and diverse cultural communities and representing cultural diversity issues on statewide, regional and local levels.
The Multicultural Access Project (MAP) Network Conference was held on 16 July 2009. Presentations from the Conference are available for download here.
