Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
In March 1985, under the provisions of Administrative Arrangements Order No.17, the Department of Community Services was established primarily superseding the Department of Community Welfare Services (VA 613). The establishment of the new department followed a refocus of many services which had been traditionally regarded as health services. Responsibility for these programs was transferred to the Department of Community Services between March and October 1985.

Many of the Department's services were provided on a regional basis. The delivery of regional programs was the responsibility of the Regional Services Division.

In October 1992 the Department of Community Services was amalgamated with the Department of Health II (VA 2695) to form the Department of Health and Community Services (VA 3092).
