Shepparton Regional Network

Living regionally, outside of Greater Melbourne, can affect access to services, and can be socially isolating. We have a vision for connecting and supporting people that live in regional Victoria and Tasmania.

The Shepparton Regional Network was started mid 2016 after surveying people living with SCI in the Hume - Southern Loddon areas of regional Victoria for their interests and preferences.

The group is open and always interested in welcoming new members to the group. Please feel free to contact us if you'd like to join, attend a meeting or learn more about it.
