Human Services Blueprint Human services means the network of supports that respond to a person's needs including services relating to public/social housing, health and wellbeing, education, disability, childcare, care and protection and youth/adult justice. The way that human services in the ACT are delivered and accessed by people in need is changing - for the better. The ACT Government and the community sector have developed the Human Services Blueprint - a plan that will guide how services and supports are provided so that people get the best outcomes for their circumstances.

Volunteers and Visitors

This may include interaction with individuals and small groups of students in a range of different activities. The Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act 2011 (the Act) commenced on 8 November 2012, with individuals working or volunteering in 'Activities or Services for Children' having until 7 November 2013 to become registered.
