Social Services Regulation Reform

Across 2020 and 2021, new legislation (Social Services Regulation Act 2021) was drafted in consultation with stakeholders and passed into law in late 2021. The Act establishes a new regulatory framework for social services, which will help keep Victorians who use social services safe from harms such as abuse and neglect.

Between January 2022 and March 2023, regulations will be developed which will complete the legislative framework within which the new regulator will operate.

The Victorian Government has established a taskforce to support and guide the development of the regulations, including service standards and the coverage of the regulatory scheme.

The taskforce is co-chaired by Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, Mr Josh Bull MP and independent government co-chair, Ms Susan Pascoe AM.
