COLLOBRATION THAT WORKS

The Linker Network empowers people and organisations to work together to achieve greater outcomes for all people, families and communities.

The traditional rigid and siloed approach to human services is coming to an end, because it lacks the community connections required to respond effectively to local needs.

The Linker Network offers a better way: it supports organisations and individuals to come together to give people a better experience.
 
Our Network members work together to make it easier for people to find and access early intervention services by using shared tools and systems which improve communication and collaboration between service providers.

Welcome to the Linker Network!

If you’re involved in work that supports vulnerable people in our community we want you to join your local Linker Network.

TEI FACS Funded Organisations
If you receive targeted early intervention (TEI) funding from FACS you will be currently involved in the FACS TEI reform. You’ll see that the Linker Network aligns to the Reform principles of meeting client needs; working in partnership with NGOs; joint service design and delivery; an integrated service system; being outcomes focused; and building sector capacity. This close alignment makes the Linker Network an important part of FACS Western Sydney Nepean Blue Mountains District’s response to the TEI Reform, and takes a lot of the guess work out of how service providers can adapt to the change.

Your organisation’s FACS Commissioning and Planning Officer (CPO) can talk to you about joining the Linker Network and how it can fit into your TEI negotiations and transition plans.

Non FACS Funded Organisations: You don’t need to be a FACS funded service to be a member of the Linker Network, you just need to be willing to work collaboratively with other community service providers in your local area, commit to the shared membership requirements, and participate in local Practice Collaboration meetings.

Once you have submitted a membership form you will be contacted by one of the Linker Network Coordination Team members, who will send you a ‘Welcome Pack’ and talk to you about next steps, including, induction, training and coaching to assist you become a fully active member of Linker Network.
