Inner Gippsland is a regional area that stretches from the beaches of the Bass Coast and South Gippsland to the agricultural hinterland of the Gippsland area.
We are part of a Victorian whole-of-government collective impact initiative, that brings together government, health, education and community organisations, academia and the community to work better together to support the health, development and wellbeing of our vulnerable children and young people, and their families.
