Targeted Earlier Intervention Reform
The Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) released a Consultation Paper on Friday 21st August 2015, as the first step in a reform process for many of their funded programs.
The consultation paper invites input and comment from non-government organisations (NGOs) on the direction of FACS Targeted Earlier Intervention Programs (TEIP).
Visit the FACS website to view or download the consultation paper and to submit feedback via the online survey or through email communication.
Feedback on the consultation paper closes on 16 October 2015.
Community Sector Roundtables
Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF) has joined with other peak agencies (including CRN) and local councils to host a series of Roundtables in Greater Western Sydney on the FACS Earlier Intervention Programs (TEIP) Reforms.
The Roundtables, to be held in three locations on September 21, 22 & 23, will feed directly into the FACS consultation processes and provide an opportunity for the community sector to come together. Visit the WSCF website to find out more information and to register for these events.
CRN will be submitting feedback to FACS regarding the Targeted Earlier Intervention Reforms and we encourage all local services to provide their input and comments.
Please contact CRN if you would like to discuss the FACS TEIP Reforms further.
