Stakeholder engagement

Frequent and ongoing engagement with interested stakeholders is vital to achieving the aims of the Priority Investment Approach.

State and territory governments, the community sector, academics, business, social entrepreneurs, and people who receive welfare payments all have important contributions to make to the Priority Investment Approach and Try, Test and Learn Fund.

Upcoming stakeholder engagement activities:

Stakeholder engagement activities have included:

  • Information sessions for tranche two, held in Sydney, Hobart, Launceston and Adelaide (December 2017 – February 2018).
  • Consultation with State and Territory Government Departments (October 2016).
  • A consultative design workshop for the Try, Test and Learn Fund (October 2016). An overview of the outcomes of this workshop is available.
  • A Policy Hack in Melbourne on 10 February 2017 to help inform ideas for the first tranche. More information on the Hack is available on DSS Engage.
