Expressions of Interest open for ACDC Project


Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA) is seeking Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified organisations to partner with us in the delivery of the Assisting Communities through Direct Connection (ACDC) Project.

Having run successfully across four sites, the ACDC project is now looking for Delivery Partner Organisations to help reach more communities around Australia.

The project offers a Proactive Outreach approach to linking people with services and assessing community needs by conducting safe door-to-door engagement with householders via ‘People Connectors’.

People Connectors discuss the project, deliver information products to householders, and engage willing householders in a survey. Householders will also be offered information and assistance to take steps to connect with services for support.

The ACDC Project has funding to deliver the project in up to 20 sites around Australia by 31 August 2022.

Expressions of Interest are now open and close on Thursday 15 July at 5pm AEST. To find out more visit:
