Supporting regional services reform are District Leadership Groups in the East and West Kimberley and in the Pilbara region that meet monthly to discuss and explore operational issues and initiatives.
The groups are responsible for developing and leading on-the-ground responses to achieve local outcomes.
Membership of the groups include representatives from State and Commonwealth governments, local government, the community services sector, Aboriginal community-controlled organisations and industry.
The groups’ activities involve:
- coordination of effort and resources on key local initiatives
- provision of local advice to the Regional Services Reform Unit and relevant funding and policy agencies
- fostering partnerships to link services, measure impact and share expertise and resources
- ensuring timely and accurate flow of information with key stakeholders.
