Human Services In Focus Newsletter

In Focus Newsletters

In focus is the Department of Human Services newsletter for community service organisations. It provides regular information on programs, services, funding and initiatives that are of interest to you and your clients. The newsletter also supports the strong partnership between the department and funded organisations.

Following feedback from community service organisations, In focus is now a monthly e-newsletter. It has a new look and is shorter, sharper and distributed by email so you can access the information you need more quickly and easily.

If you would like to subscribe to the e-newsletter, email humanservicesinfocus@dhs.vic.gov.au. Previous editions of the newsletter in the old format are available below.
