Since the Inner West Sector Support Development Officer has been at ECCNSW in July 2020, they have continued to support the 147 CHSP service providers across the Inner West Region in order to mentor and guide these services in implementing Commonwealth CHSP Reforms and build service capacity.
Furthermore, training is being provided via a regional training calendar, and during these COVID-19 times the training has been delivered via in-house Zoom meetings and webinar sessions.
These training sessions are provided to upskill the Inner West CHSP coordinators, staff, and volunteers, and have been well received by the sector.
