Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 02 Hansard (Thursday, 16 February 2017) . . Page.. 703 ..


(3) What is the total budget allocation for the ACT Office for Women across the forward estimates.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The Community Participation Group brings together a number of functions under the one umbrella and includes the functions of Community Recovery, Youth Engagement, Office for Veterans & Seniors, Office for Women, and the Office for Multicultural Affairs.

The Community Participation Group has changed over the last few years based on organisational needs, and has also aligned with a general theme of optimising community participation and community engagement. As outlined during the Budget estimates hearings in 2016 the resources are largely pooled.

Staff in each area of the Community Participation Group work across all program areas on an as needs basis. Therefore staffing allocations are not able to be compared across the years.

There are currently 29.73 staff employed on a Full-Time Equivalent basis within the Community Participation Group.

(2) As at 1 January 2014, there were a total of 24.58 staff employed on a Full-Time Equivalent basis within the Community Participation Group.

As at 1 January 2015, there were a total of 21.11 staff employed on a Full-Time Equivalent basis within the Community Participation Group.

(3) In the 2016-17 financial year, Output Class 2 Community Participation received $28.6 million in government payment for outputs, this is nominally allocated accordingly to functions of Community Recovery, Youth Engagement, Office for Ageing, Office for Women, the Office for Multicultural Affairs and the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs ($2.60 million).
