Regional Communication Services (RCS) + Communication and Inclusion Resource Centre (CIRC) = Communication Access Network (CAN)

The Communication Access Network (CAN) has been active since 2003.

We use a hub and spoke model made up of  Scope’s Communication and Inclusion Resource Centre (CIRC) as the state wide hub, and eleven Regional Communication Services (RCS) across Victoria as the spokes. These services support individuals with communication difficulties, including those who require an alternative means of communication.

The Regional Communication Services provide information, advice, education, and are involved in community development projects and activities. The activities and projects focus on building the capacity of communities  to better include people with communication difficulties.
