Human Services Advisory Committee
The Human Services (HSAC) was created out of the Human Services Implimentation Working Group which was set up by the RWPP to impliment the first stage of the Morgan Disney report into Human Services. The decision to absorb the RWPP functions into the RWA saw the HSAC continue this function but also become the first of the RWA's ministerial advisory committtees. Some changes to the makeup of the HSAC were advised when the RWA website went live on 7 October 2005. The membership of the HSMAC was reviewed in July 2007 with the chairing being taken over by the RWA CEO from the joint chairing of the RWA Reforming Human Services Manager and the Director of NCOSS. While NCOSS remains represented the representative of local NGO Human Service providers was removed and not replaced.
