GroupsCommunity Services Operations1300 650 172The Community Services Operations division provides a dedicated focus on children, family and disability services through our four operational divisions - North, West, East and South Divisions. We develop policy and funding frameworks that help us better respond to people's needs. We work with clients, service providers and other government partners to look at a person's overall needs and co‑design services that are more connected and easier for our clients to navigate. We focus on the child and the child's development to build the capabilities of both an individual and their family, and to preserve and reunify families wherever possible. We monitor the quality of our service systems to ensure child safety across both government and non-government services. Our services enable communities to be healthy, safe and strong by addressing their current needs.
