The Victorian Inclusion Agency (VIA) is the Victorian branch of the Inclusion Support Program (ISP). While we are contracted by the government to deliver the ISP in Victoria, we are not a government agency.
We are supported by the Victorian Aboriginal Education Association (VAEAI), the peak Koorie community organisation for education and training in Victoria.
What does the Victorian Inclusion Agency do?
The Victorian Inclusion Agency offers free inclusion support to eligible education and care services, including long day care, family day care and outside school hours care services. This brilliant program gives every child a fair chance by ensuring they have the support they need to thrive in early childhood education and care.
