On October 10, Scope Northern District Lifestyle Options was visited by the President of the Legislative Council of Victoria, The Honourable Bruce Atkinson MLC and Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull MLA.

Bruce and Tim were given a tour of the Northern District Lifestyle Options centre by Beth Bernard, who has been with the centre for three and a half years, and were given an insight to the daily activities and life of the people we support at Northern District.

Both MPs keenly discussed the National Disability Insurance Scheme and were interested how people within Scope were responding to the roll out in the North East Melbourne area and what Scope’s priorities are going forward.

The visit was warmly and excitedly received by the people we support and our staff, who commented on the high level of personal interest and engagement shown by both MPs.
