NavSpace was commissioned to enable completion of an Interactive Service Directory Website to support service response and community members in the recovery of communities impacted by the North East VIC Bushfires and COVID-19.

In response to the 2019-20 Victorian Bushfires numerous services were funded to support community recovery and postvention support. Keeping track of all stakeholders and their service offerings involved in recovery efforts proved difficult. Directories quickly became out of date and something more long term was required.
The recovery and emotional wellbeing committees in the North East Regions outlined the need for a more strategic and longer term solution that can remain current and versatile in the ever-changing environment. COVID-19 created additional challenges in service offerings and responses, hence increasing the need for some form of online and smart phone directory which can stand the test of change and time.
APMHA HealthCare submitted a proposal to Bushfire Recovery Victoria to fund the development of this solution. The local Bushfire Recovery Victoria committees endorsed the proposal and worked collaboratively in its development over 2020-2021.
We would like to thank all those who have contributed to the development of this website:
Navspace was generously funded by the State of Victoria through a Bushfire Recovery Victoria Grants program, in response to the 2019-20 bushfires which impacted on North East Victorian communities. APMHA HealthCare Ltd. was commissioned to develop this website in consultation with local stakeholders and community members.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia, their diversity, histories and knowledge and their continuing connections to land, waterways and culture. We pay our respect to all Australian Indigenous Peoples and their cultures, and to Elders of past, present and future generations.
