Submission to Commonwealth Department of Social Services
In December 2015, the Commonwealth Department of Social Services (DSS) released a ‘Benchmarking’ Discussion Paper, inviting comments from relevant service providers. The paper “describes the intended collection and use of benchmarking data to help foster community awareness and innovation and to improve wellbeing for individuals, families and their communities”.
Western Sydney Community Forum’s Regional Development Officers (Aged & Disability) have submitted a response, on behalf of the Western Sydney/Nepean Regional Community Care Forum.
The response was based on feedback received at the regional forum held on 1 March 2016, as well as those received before and after the event. Many thanks to those who participated.
