The Peninsula Model facilitates quality education and training opportunities specifically tailored to develop the capacity of community and health service professionals to meet the current and emerging needs of local communities across Frankston Mornington Peninsula.

Frankston 'Multi Sector Community of Practice'

Frankston Mornington Peninsula 'Multi Sector Community of Practice' (FMPCoP) has been established with the support of National Disability Services (NDS) to facilitate cross sectoral collaboration to better understand and respond to the complex and changing operating environment as a result of various health and social service reforms.

Participants have prioritised the need to develop shared understandings and engage in work relevant capacity building in the topic area of 'Consumer Directed Care', primarily focused on developing organisational and practitioner capacity to "enable participants to exercise choice and control in the pursuit of their goals, including deciding how, when and by whom in relation to the delivery of their supports".

For further information about how to get involved with the FMPCoP, including attending the upcoming Community Forum on Tuesday 22nd August from 9.30am at the Cube, Frankston Arts Centre, please click here
