Redfern-Waterloo Human Services Plan phase two forum

The following letter was received by many agencies on May 22 2006 advising them of the process for the development of Phase Two of the RWA's Human Services Plan.

I write to invite your organisation to nominate one representative to attend a forum organised by the Redfern-Waterloo Authority (RWA) to be held over two days from 24 to 25 July 2006 at the Australian Technology Park, Redfern. This event will be fully catered and the venue has disabled access.

The aim of the forum is to engage members of the community, service providers and public policy experts in the development of phase two of the Redfern-Waterloo Human Services Plan.

As you may be aware, phase one of the Human Services Plan is in the process of being implemented. The document is publicly available. The Plan is about improving the delivery of services to children and families, Aboriginal people and young people. Phase one also includes actions to improve the delivery of health services in the Redfern-Waterloo area.

Phase two of the Human Services Plan will focus on improving services delivered to homeless people, people with disabilities, older people and migrant communities living in the area.

The forum aims to provide an opportunity for participants to discuss, analyse and formulate suggestions on achievable actions that improve the delivery of service to these groups.

Unfortunately, due to space and logistical limitations attendance is by invitation only. No proxies or alternates can be accepted.

The RWA Human Services Team will closely monitor acceptances to ensure that there is broad participation across all of the relevant sectors.

Participants will be provided with details of the forum along with an information kit well in advance of the event. The information kit will contain the following:

  • A forum program;
  • Issues papers;
  • Forum operation guidelines;
  • Venue map;
  • Workshop nomination forum;
  • Expression of Interest form for participants wishing to speak in the plenary sessions; and
  • Form to nominate special dietary requirements.

Pre-forum submissions

Written submissions from organisations and members of the community not attending the forum are welcome. Pre-forum submissions will be made available to all forum participants as a resource to inform discussion.

Information kits to assist in the development of submissions will be made available to those wishing to make a pre-forum submission. Please contact Steven Todorovski on 9202 9100 or reception@rwa.nsw.qov.au to request an information kit.

Submissions can be mailed to Stage 2 Human Services Plan, RWA, PO Box 3222, Redfern 2016 or emailed to humanservices@rwa.nsw.gov.au . The closing date for submissions is COB Friday 14 July 2006.

RSVP by Friday 7 July 2006 to Steven Todorovski on 9202-9100 or email to reception@rwa.nsw.gov.au . For more information about the forum also contact Steven by phone or email.

Yours sincerely
