6.5 Resourcing


The issue of resourcing was raised on many occasions throughout the consultation process. The three main issues were adequacy, equity and fragmentation.


The rural consultations indicated that some Koori community controlled health services are resourced at a much lower level per head of population than others, and as a result have struggled to develop services and adequately meet community needs. Further to this, the second round metropolitan consultation pointed out that metropolitan Koori community controlled organisations are experiencing a demand for social, emotional and cultural wellbeing support that far outweighs their service capacity.


The other issue raised, fragmentation, was noted to be the result of poorly 'targeted, inflexible provision of resources by funding bodies. Equity and fragmentation can be addressed by improved planning and coordination, but the issue of adequacy of resource levels remains one of concern for many participants in the consultations.
