Regional Awareness and Accessibility Program

HaDSCO is conscious that a number of communities face specific challenges accessing services. To improve accessibility and raise awareness of HaDSCO, the Office undertakes a number of Regional Awareness and Accessibility Program (RAAP) activities in regional areas. These activities are undertaken in collaboration with the State Ombudsman, Commonwealth Ombudsman and the Office of the Information Commissioner.
