Attachment A


The Community Participation Group brings together a number of functions under one umbrella. The Group includes the functions Community Recovery, Youth Engagement, Office for Ageing, Office for Women and the Office for Multicultural Affairs. Within the same Output 3.1 is the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, the Community Development Grant Scheme and previously Community Facilities.

The Community Participation Group has changed over the last few years based on organisational needs, but has also aligned with a general theme of optimising community participation and community engagement. As outlined during the Estimates Hearings the resources are largely pooled and this is found to be an effective use of resources given that the policy work and engagement activities can be episodic.

For this reason the figures provided for the Community Participation subunits are notional because staff in each area of the Community Participation Group work across other program areas on an as needs basis. Therefore these numbers are difficult to compare across the years.

For example the most significant movement in resourcing over the last few years has been the transfer of community facilities properties to CMTEDD and the movement of the community recovery function into the Community Participation Output Class. Greater detail regarding activities of this Output Class is provided in the CSD Annual Report.
