Background to Speak Out on RWA Human Services Plan

The information below was provided as background for the ongoing Speak Out on this topic.

The RWA conducted a consultation about a proposed Human Services Plan (HSP) for Redfern Waterloo until Friday November 11 2005. Following the close of submissions the RWA Staff, Ministerial Advisory Committee for Human Services (MACHS) and Human Services CEO's Group are to meet and go over any changes to the DHSP before it goes to NSW Cabinet (targeted for 22nd November).

Even though the period for consultation has now past we are told that the Plan and how it is implemented will be subject to input and review. So please share your comments and with us as well as passing them on to the RWA.

The DHSP consultation was based around people making their comments directly to the RWA and the RWA deciding what then needs to be changed in the Plan. REDWatch thinks it is also important that people share their comments, draft submissions and concerns within the community so others are aware of the issues being raised and can also make their comments on these matters. This page has been set up to allow people to post comments regarding the RWA's HSP and its implementation.
