Priority 3

Delivering modern services for our communities

Our services reflect the changing needs of South Australians and are focused on supporting positive and lasting outcomes.

Priority outcomes

  1. All services provided or commissioned are developed to maximise outcomes, safety and quality with no unnecessary red tape.
  2. We integrate our services to ensure we understand the supports and care our communities need and then deliver them.
  3. Our services and programs are driven by data and the best available evidence, research and practice and we always measure and evaluate outcomes.
  4. We will make it easier and more accessible for people to connect with DHS, including through digitising and streamlining all possible services.
