Standards and Regulation Unit updates

Human Services Standards Quality Reference Group

The Human Services Standards Quality Reference Group includes members from community service organisations, Aboriginal community controlled organisations, sector peak bodies, and the Department of Health and Human Services.

It was established to provide:

  • information and discuss matters regarding the implementation of the Human Services Standards (Standards) (gazetted as Department of Health and Human Services Standards)
  • input and advice into the processes involved in the registration of community service organisations under the Disability Act 2006 and the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 as they relate to the Standards
  • an opportunity to solicit feedback and share resources and best practice examples which may be used to plan quality forums
  • Department of Health and Human Services updates such as policy changes, changes to program requirements, Standards and Regulation Unit updates
  • an opportunity to share information about the Standards and registration processes within the membership group
  • a feedback pathway between the members and the Department of Health and Human Services endorsed independent review bodies
  • an avenue through which information will be disseminated by the members about the Standards and registration.

The minutes from the reference group are available to download below.
