South Australian Government Universal Access and Inclusion Guidelines
To achieve resilient and strong communities we need inclusive practices. Increasingly research indicates that people who are excluded are socially and economically disadvantaged, impacting on their health, wellbeing and capacity to participate in the community. In consultation with Government agencies, the South Australian Government Universal Access and Inclusion Guidelines (The Guidelines) have been developed by the Department of Human Services. The Guidelines are a tool for State Government departments to ensure that their services cater for all members of the South Australian community and to assess whether their policies, processes and culture support access and inclusion.

Reconciliation Action Plan
DHS was the first South Australian organisation to become a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace to prevent violence against women.
White Ribbon Australia figures show 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.
