Delivering transition in partnership

Community Services is working in partnership with the non-government sector to develop a strong, sustainable OOHC system in NSW. The transition is being led by an OOHC Transition Ministerial Advisory Group (MAG), which developed the Stage 1 Transition Implementation Framework and Plan and established a Transition Program Office (TPO), comprising of staff from Community Services, AbSec and ACWA.

The Transition Program Office is funded until 30 June 2014.

A key driver of successful transition is local implementation. While Communiity Services and FACS has been localised into 15 districts, OOHC transition continues to be managed according to former Community Services regions and led by hosting districts.

Each of the seven Community Services regions across NSW has a dedicated Regional Implementation Group (RIG) consisting of government and non-government partners. The RIGs have developed Regional Implementation Plans (RTP) to guide local implementation.
