Two tenders to improve access to primary health care services for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities

Two separate tenders are to be released providing the sector with an opportunity to improve access to primary health care and allied health services for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities.

Tender One

A single service response that addresses Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) young people’s Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) use. It is fundamental that the model is underpinned by culturally responsive family-centred practice. Targeted providers: multicultural sector, ethno-specific services, AOD providers, family services.

About the tender
Tender name: Culturally Responsive, Family-centred AOD Model of Care

It is well-documented that young people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds experience significant challenges to accessing culturally appropriate Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment services, mental health services and other supports.

NWMPHN is seeking to commission a culturally responsive, family-centred AOD model of care which supports young people from CALD backgrounds to access appropriate services.

It is unlikely that any one service can meet the needs of this approach. It is therefore recommended that a partnership be developed to provide an integrated response that increases community understanding of the issues and improves access to culturally safe service provision. Mental health and other relevant health services and supports may also be integrated into the service to respond to the complex needs of culturally diverse people.

Who should apply

  • Multicultural sector
  • Ethno-specific services
  • Family services
  • AOD providers
  • Community health and community based organisations
  • Other NFPs

Timeframe
Late June 2019 to 30 June 2021 (two years)
