Local Area Network Consultation

The Victorian government is establishing Local Area Networks to assist in the co-ordination of service provision and planning in relation to vulnerable children.  It is proposed that 17 networks will be established aligning with the Department of Human Services (DHS) boundaries, our region will be known as the Western Region.  The Western region comprises of the following LGA’s: Glenelg, Southern Grampians, Moyne, Warrnambool, Corangamite, West Wimmera, Horsham, Northern Grampians, Hindmarsh and Yarriambiack.

Each LLEN within Victoria is required to consult with their current stakeholders as to the role of the LLEN’s under the new system being proposed. This is a contract requirement for the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD).

It would be appreciated if you could complete the survey by Friday April 4th, 2014.

The survey is only 4 questions and should take you no more than 2 minutes to complete.
