Central to the concept of governance is accountability.  Whether an AOD treatment agency is part of the private, government or non-government sector, the organisation needs to be accountable to all stakeholders including those that fund, support, or use the service and to the wider community.  Good governance is an effective workforce development strategy as it ensures effective service delivery by providing:  

  • leadership and direction for the organisation
  • risk management
  • financial planning and management
  • legal and ethical compliance
  • administrative management
  • relationship building
  • people management
  • positive representation of the organisation.
