Community Services Industry Planning – Regional Consultations during October

Posted by Sharyn Rognrust, Category: Consultation, Health Planning & Design, Health Reform,

The community services industry, which includes areas such as disability, youth, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, drug and alcohol, family violence, LGBTI, community legal, migrant and multicultural, and out-of-home care, is entering a time of significant change driven by a number of State and Commonwealth government reforms, as well as social and economic factors.

To ensure the sector can maximise the opportunity of the reforms, manage the impact of changes and meet increasing demand for services, the Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Victorian community sector are working to develop a 10 year Community Services Industry Plan for Victoria.

This will create an overarching vision for the future, as well as address the effects of the range of reforms across the wider community services industry.

To have your say on the Plan’s development, VCOSS and DHHS invite you to attend a regional consultation:
