Multicultural communities

Diversity Services aims to continuously improve our services through community consultation, education, communication and participation.

We consult with various communities through their representatives and other justice agencies to identify the barriers in accessing the justice system.

We will continue to develop strategies through consultation to make our services more flexible and user-friendly.

The Multicultural Plan

To demonstrate our commitment to improving services for people from multicultural communities, we have developed the 'Department of Justice Multicultural Plan 2015-2018'.

About the Multicultural Plan

The Multicultural NSW Act 2000 (NSW) (section 3(4)) requires each public authority to observe the multicultural principles in conducting its affairs.

This Plan provides an outline of how the Department of Justice has integrated the multicultural principles into its work and will engage with multicultural communities over the next four years.

The Plan has been developed in line with the outcomes in Multicultural NSW’s Multicultural Planning Framework.

The key areas of the Multicultural Plan are:

  • Outcome 1: Planning
  • Outcome 2: Consultation and feedback
  • Outcome 3: Leadership
  • Outcome 4: Human resources
  • Outcome 5: Access and equity
  • Outcome 6: Communication
  • Outcome 7: Social and economic development
