Do you use human services? Does the term ‘human services’ mean anything to you? It refers to the range of programs or supports that can respond to a person’s needs and can include public/social housing, health and wellbeing, education, disability, childcare, care and protection and justice.
Navigating these services – whether provided by government or non-government organisations – can be a problem and it’s one that we know needs to be addressed.
One way the ACT Government is looking to do this is through the Local Services Network, an initiative under the Human Services Blueprint. The Local Services Network wants to make delivery of human services easier for people and is initially focused on West Belconnen.
If you live in West Belconnen or provide services to the area what have your experiences of human services been? What has worked and what could be changed?
