Victoria’s first Interchange program was established in December 1980. Moves to establish a program centered in Bendigo began in November 1982. In July 1983, at a public meeting, an interim committee was formed to oversee the establishment of Interchange Loddon-Campaspe Region, as this region was known until the change to Interchange Loddon-Mallee Region in 1994.
Interchange Loddon (Campaspe) Mallee has been an incorporated association since 1986.

One of the great strengths of Interchange in this region over the years has been its continuing emphasis on being consumer driven and personalized. We are not the cheapest option …. but can boast quality.

Interchange has grown from a single core program, the Host Program, in the early years to become a wide-ranging support service for families, children and adults.

Interchange broadened its regional base with the opening of an office in Swan Hill, in December 1991, followed by an office in Mildura in February 1992.
Today offices are located in Bendigo and Mildura.

Interchange (Bendigo) has had three physical moves in its history. The first base was in shared office space in View Street, followed by a move in 1987 to self-contained premises in View Street. In 1989, Interchange moved to its current base at 127 Mitchell Street, which underwent a major ($2M) redevelopment and extension in 2011 with funding from the Federal Government under the Jobs Fund.

Interchange is part funded through the Department of Health & Human Services - Home and Community Care (HACC) program, Disability Services and Fee for Services.
