Human services engagement

Listening to our community

At the ACT Health Directorate, we know how important it is to listen to what our community is telling us as we develop our plans, policies, and systems.

We understand that, to get good engagement from our stakeholders, we need to ensure our approaches to engagement are cohesive and are not placing an unnecessary burden on our already busy human services sector.

To help with planning for engaging with us, we have produced a calendar of forward engagements to assist individuals and organisations understand what engagements are approaching and to be ready to participate in the engagement activities. The calendar shows foreseeable engagement activities in 2023 and 2024, and will be updated on a quarterly basis moving forward.
In addition, the ACT Health Directorate and the sector have agreed to a set of principles and understandings to frame our engagements. These principles mean that engagements will be:

  • timely
  • regular
  • open and transparent
  • respectful
  • inclusive
  • sensitive.
