The community hubs and partnerships (CHaPs) program is a dedicated multi-agency initiative. It focuses on unlocking social infrastructure and integrated service delivery opportunities by:

  • greater business intelligence – improved sharing of and access to information for cross government place-based decision making
  • responsive service delivery – greater accessibility to streamlined and integrated services
  • improved value for money – maximised investment and optimised use of government resources
  • sustainable practice and culture – embedded evidence-based collaborative approaches to social service and infrastructure planning.

CHaPs works with all levels of government, non-government organisations and the private sector in areas of population growth and changing community needs.
