The Department of Local Government and Communities recognises the vital role that women play in building strong and vibrant communities.
Quality research and community consultation are central to our work, whether we are developing policy or providing advice on programs and services. We work in partnership with women, community groups and with other government agencies.
We recognise that all women are different and that women’s priorities change during their life, and what may be important to a young woman will not be the same for a woman nearing retirement. We recognise this diversity of women when we are:
working on inter-government advisory committees
organising community consultations
responding to government enquiries and contributing to policy development
analysing statistical data; and
providing gender analysis in policy development.
We offer a confidential telephone information and referral service on 1800 199 174.
