Key strategies and plans

Strategic Plan

The department's strategic plan outlines key priorities and strategies for our work. These stem from our vision of fairness, opportunity and choice for all South Australians.

Together, we aim to provide better services and programs that make a lasting difference for the community, and to be a customer-focused organisation that puts people first.

White Ribbon

DHS was the first South Australian organisation to become a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace to prevent violence against women.

White Ribbon Australia figures showed that two out of three women who experience violence by a current partner are in paid employment. This means that the workplace can make a significant difference to the safety and wellbeing of women experiencing violence.

DHS is committed to preventing violence against women. The department has encouraged all male staff to champion this cause.
