How our organisation is structured to deliver services, drive reform and provide regulatory oversight.
The department’s structure provides for integrated stewardship of the systems and outcomes in health and human services.
Central divisions lead policy development, service and funding design and system management. Four operational divisions oversee and coordinate the delivery and funding of services and initiatives across 17 areas of the state. Each division covers a mix of rural, outer-metropolitan and inner-metropolitan areas of Victoria.
Nine groups lead the development of policy, strategy, service design, reform and development and provide regulatory oversight. The groups improve service delivery by setting directions in: service design and implementation; social housing and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) reform; community and executive services; financial and corporate services; and policy and strategy. The groups’ functions include:
translating policy intent into improved practices
monitoring service delivery standards
developing plans and policies
driving departmental consistency to enable service delivery objectives.
