Aboriginal Regional HACC Development and Support Services (ARHACC DSS) primary focus is to develop mechanisms to improve the access to, and effectiveness of, both Aboriginal specific services and non-Aboriginal services to Aboriginal communities.  The worker identifies needs and implements strategies to develop and support existing as well as new HACC services.

RHACC DSS’s primary aim is to ensure necessary integration and coordination of HACC services to Aboriginal people in their communities.

The service covers 8 LGAs from Woolgoolga to Tea Gardens. The Coordinator works in conjunction with service providers within this region offering support, planning and development advice.

A training component enables Aboriginal service providers and their staff the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills to deliver quality services.  The service facilitates monthly Aboriginal Network meetings to ensure service providers receive the latest information on policy changes and service provision.
