The Forum will focus on a range of priority issues, including collaborative best practice and ways in which service barriers can be overcome, community services procurement, working to support the government’s commitment to strengthen data sharing and linkage, and development of an outcomes framework for community services. Michelle Scott and Helen Creed will lead this session, as chairperson and deputy co-chairperson of the Forum.
