The JNC acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work, the Gadigal and Bidjigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that these lands always were and always will be Aboriginal lands. We celebrate First Nations Peoples’ connection to the land and recognise the importance of Indigenous voices and culture. We would like to advise that there may be images or videos on this website of people who have since passed.

VAST Training Service: New Training Calendar

VAST Training Services have new calendar of training and workshops for CHSP staff, volunteer, managers and board members.

VAST Training Services have released a brand new VAST Aged Care & Disability Services Training Calendar. It is packed with workshops and training sessions to specifically meet the needs of staff, volunteers, managers and board members of Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) funded services. 

What’s New?

With the commencement of CHSP, staff are excepted to be trained in non accredited areas, as appropriate to their roles. So make sure you or your supervisor book you in for any of the following training if you have not already undertaken this:

  • Manual Handling
  • WHS Training
  • Boundaries & Duty of Care
  • Safe Home Visiting
  • Safe Food Handling

Exciting Extras!

In addition to our essential training we have added some other valuable learning and development options to support you and your staff to be at the top of your game when delivering CHSP services:

  • BUILDING YOUR EVIDENCE BASE: Measuring & Reporting Client Outcomes, Evaluating Service and Projects
  • Elder Abuse
  • LGBTI Elder Care
  • Engaging With the Aboriginal Community with David Widders


We are still offering CHSP funded organisations, in our funded region, reimbursement of up to $1000 for Tailored for Tomorrow sessions.

We look forward to supporting the learning and development of you and your staff and volunteers so that everyone can deliver best practice service always!
