Update from your new Social Services Regulator

12 April 2024
The new Social Services Regulator has launched its website and released a series of guidance and education materials to help prepare the sector for the new regulatory scheme, which starts on 1 July 2024.

The new Social Service Standards will provide a single registration process for hundreds of community organisations, covering services including supported residential services and disability services not within the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Jonathan Kaplan was appointed the inaugural Social Services Regulator of Victoria on 1 February 2024. The new regulator replaces the Human Services Regulator and is tasked with streamlining and simplifying the regulation of social services organisations. 

The new system will be more efficient and create a safer environment for all Victorians.
