We negotiate with Victorian and Australian Governments and other stakeholders for funding and provision of council provided social and community services.
By developing planning frameworks and capacity-building initiatives, we assist councils with their service provision.
We host the Human Services Committee and hold regular forums for council staff.
The roles of each level of government in planning, funding and delivering human services is recognised by a partnership protocol between us, the Department of Health, the Department of Human Services and the Department of Education and Training.
When appropriate, we establish memorandums of understanding and program partnership agreements between state and local governments.
