About NavSpace

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.

For quick and easy access from your phone,  you can add NavSpace as a web app by clicking ‘Add to Home Screen’ in your browser app settings. 

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 Directories quickly became out of date and something more long term was required.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.
