Organisational arrangements

In June 2014, the department changed its service structure from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs and Multicultural Affairs, to Economic Participation and Community Participation, in line with the department’s 2014–2018 Strategic Plan (PDF, 1.6 MB). Traditionally, the department has provided social policy advice to support its core business. While this important social policy work will continue, the department will focus more of its efforts on delivering services to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and culturally diverse communities to deliver increased economic participation as the key enabler to improving social outcomes.

The department also reviewed and realigned its organisational structure (PDF, 835 KB) to reflect the service areas of Economic Participation and Community Participation.
