Community Services Reform: ReGen's response (08/04/13)

Former top Commonwealth public servant Peter Shergold, has undertaken an extensive review into the Victorian community services sector and come up with a discussion paper that raises some valid questions about how these services are funded, co-ordinated and, most imporantly, how they can be of greater benefit to people in need.

ReGen's response to the discussion paper welcomes the broad direction of the discussion paper, but raises some important concerns about the potential impacts on the accessibility, quality and evaluation of AOD treatment services in Victoria.  Our response addresses the specific questions raised in the discussion paper, with our overall comments at the end.

We look forward to seeing the government's response to community sector feedback.
