The focus of this entry is to provide a guide to direct services available to residents, rather than to the program or accountability structure of government departments.
However, for DHS, in addition to details of its direct client services, we have also included a general guide to its overall organisation. Immediately over page are charts summarising structures at the Northern and West Metropolitan Regional Office.
The Directory then provides details of the following direct services located within the Client Services Unit, relevant to the City of Whittlesea:
• Adoption and Permanent Care
• Child Protection
• Juvenile Justice Unit
• Disability Services
• Office of Housing/Public Housing
• School Nursing
• Specialist Children’s Services
